The marinvaders (Marine Invaders) is tool to process data on marine invasive species from existing databases
The MarINvaders Toolkit
The MarINvaders Toolkit is a Python 3 module to assess the native and alien distribution of marine species.
It can be used to find the native and alien distribution of a given species or to get an overview of all alien and native species found in one marine ecoregion.
To do so, Marinivaders cross-references and harmonizes distribution maps from several databases to find all occurences of a given species and to gather information on its native and alien status per location recording. You can find the full documentation here.
Where to get it
The full source code and all requireded local data is available at the MarINvaders GitLab repostiory..
MarINvaders is registered at PyPI and at conda-forge for installation within a conda environment. To install use
pip install MariINvaders --upgrade
and when using conda:
conda update -c conda-forge MarINvaders
Getting started in five lines
Install the package as explained above and start your prefered Python interpreter
Import the package
Now we can get the species data from this barnacle with
species_data = marinvaders.Species(aphia_id=421137)
and list all occurences
as well as the alien distribution of the barnacle with
These can also be easily plotted with
In addition, MarINvaders includes API functions for analysing all species within an ecoregion.
