Recent non-indigenous ascidians in the Mediterranean Sea.

Abstract

A revision of the non-indigenous ascidians in the Mediterranean Sea has been carried out, from published and unpublished records. The records considered include the last 50 years, which encompasses the period after the Pérès inventory (in 1958). Our aim is to analyze the ancient and recent records with comments about their validity and possible introduction vectors.
