Abstract: The European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN) provides tools and services for the exploration of alien species information in Europe. Efficient widgets can be used for the easy creation of distribution maps of any aggregation of alien species. Herein, we investigated distribution patterns of marine alien species in the Mediterranean Sea, using EASIN tools and data from various sources. These patterns differ depending on the pathway of introduction, indicating that human activities shape alien species richness patterns and overall biodiversity patterns in a changing Mediterranean Sea.
