This study used a species distribution model to predict the amount of suitable habitat in the Laurentian Great Lakes (U.S.) for three potential invasive species (the golden mussel, northern snakehead, and killer shrimp). The assessment approach highlights the importance of collecting high-resolution freshwater habitat data to supplement models that predict invasive species success by incorporating multiple sources of data.
