Summary

Data represent dependent and independent variables used in logistic modeling for a study entitled "Evaluating Establishment Success of Non-native Fishes Introduced to Inland Aquatic Habitats of Tropical Pacific Islands." The phases of invasion of nonnative species are transport, introduction, establishment, and spread. To understand likelihood of establishment of species moved to new regions, investigators often use analytical methods that include life-history attributes, ecophysiological parameters, distributional factors, propagule pressure, introduction pathways, and other salient features that contribute to successful establishment. Introductions that fail to result in establishment are often unknown. In this study we apply an [...]

Purpose

Data were compiled from published and unpublished sources. These variables were scored based on survey of the literature, other sources of technical data, closely related or similar species in cases where few data were available, and personal knowledge of the authors. Considerable uncertainty exists regarding exact values of many of these variables for some of the species in this study. Therefore, categorical rather than continuous variables were used for many species’ attributes.
