Aquatic Species

Scientific Journal Articles

Provides selected resources for citations, with some links to fulltext, for articles from scientific, scholarly, or professional journals for invasive aquatic species. See Resource Library - Scientific Journal Articles for general resources and other species. See Searching for Journal Articles for other search options.

Also, see Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles from USDA authors from NAL's Digital Collections (NALDC).

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations. Google Scholar helps you identify the most relevant research across the world of scholarly research.
