Abstract

Results of a long-term study of the biomass dynamics and distribution of two introduced species, the polychaete Hediste diversicolor and the mollusk Abra ovata, in the eastern and western areas of the North Caspian Sea during the period of the sea’s transgression (1978–2007) are analyzed. The distribution of the introduced species in years with different water level is mapped.
