Review of low-temperature tolerance data for 17 species of non-native fishes that have been observed in Everglades National Park

May 30, 2018

Temperature is an important factor in understanding biogeography and species composition. In south Florida, non-native fishes' tolerance to low temperatures is a critical factor in delineating their geographic spread. We provide a literature review summarizing the current state of knowledge of low-temperature tolerances for all seventeen non-native fishes that have been found in Everglades National Park.
