The River Danube is a main aquatic corridor in Europe. Its importance increased even further with the opening of the Main-Danube canal providing connection also to the River Rhine. The Hungarian Danube Research Station of the Institute of Ecology and Botany of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences monitors biodiversity changes by more than half a century. This paper introduces invasive algae, plants, bivalves and crustaceans along the 417 km Hungarian stretch of the River Danube. Site and methods Sampling sites included the complete Hungarian Danube stretch, in some cases additional waters, such as the River Ipoly were also investigated. The presence or abundance of invasive species were detected and determined by standard methods appropriate for the given group. Results
