AbstractThe predator ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi is a globally invasive species that was introduced in the seas around Europe and its expansion in new areas continue. M.leidyi has a wide environmental tolerance and could establish in contrasting ecosystems. We analyze variability of its morpho- physiological features, genetic diversity, patterns of spatial and temporal population dynamics in the Black, Azov, Caspian, Baltic, several areas of the Mediterranean seas as a response on different conditions (salinity, temperature, prey concentration). We conclude that environmental conditions determined its morpho-physiological features in its phenological variability range. This study may provide understanding evolutionary processes of invasive species in contrasting ecosystems
