Biological invasions are considered as one of the five most important direct drivers of biodiversity loss. Alien species may become invasive and displace native species, cause the loss of native genotypes, modify habitats, change community structure, affect food-web properties and ecosystem processes, impede the provision of ecosystem services, impact human health, and cause substanial economic losses. While incorporation of actions to mitigate invasive species have been proposed in terrestrial conservation planning, this not the case for the marine realm. Currently the Mediterranean Sea is the most impacted sea int he world hosting more than 900 alien species. The predominant pathway is the Canal of Suez which acts as a corridor for the movement of thermophilic species of Indo-Pacific origin into the Mediterranean. Most scientific efforts have been restricted in recording the presence and abundance of alien species, assess their trajectories and pathways, while few studeies try to assess the impacts of those on native communities. Scarcely, there are recommendations on how to manage invasive species and no study to our knowledge explores how to incorporate invasive species into marine conservation planning. Using distribution maps of native habitats and species, and of alien species across the Mediterranean Sea, we will implement and modiy MarProb (Marxan with Probabilities) as to identify priority areas for conservation based on the current distribution of alien species and future distribution based on climate change data.
