This chapter highlights the ecological change caused by the invasion of Wisconsin's aquatic ecosystems by a series of “emerging” exotic species. It focuses on five species: rusty crayfish, zebra mussels, spiny water flea, rainbow smelt, and common carp. Invasive species are a key driver of ecological change and contribute to biotic homogenization and the loss of ecosystem services. Some of these changes are apparent, while others, particularly those involving interactions among invaders, are difficult to predict. An effective management strategy will involve a mix of preventing the further spread of invasives while simultaneously adapting to the presence of exotics in lakes and streams.

Keywords:   invasive species, rusty crayfish, zebra mussels, spiny water flea, rainbow smelt, common carp, ecological change
