Abstract

Abstract The Australasian burrowing isopod
(Sphaeroma quoianum) has been introduced to numerous
embayments along the Pacific coast of North
America. In some bays, populations of S. quoianum
can exceed tens of thousands of individuals m3 and
bioturbation by the isopods can exacerbate shoreline
erosion. Within their native range, however, studies
recognize S. quoianum primarily as a woodborer. We
measured the distribution, prevalence, habitat use,
density, and associated fauna of S. quoianum in two
bays within the native range [Tamar estuary (Tamar
