About This Project

Inducible defenses are physical or behavioral changes that some organisms undergo in response to the presence of a predator. These changes may affect if a non-native species will successfully establish in a new location. This research will determine which signals from a Pacific Northwest crab predator trigger inducible defenses in the non-native purple varnish clam and if this response is innate or has developed since the clam's introduction.
