  • Invasive Mesquite (Prosopis juliflora), an allergy and health challenge 

    Hussain, M.I.; Shackleton, R.T.; El-Keblawy, A.; Perez, M.D.T.; Gonzalez, L. (2020)
    Mesquite (Prosopis juliflora (Sw.) DC), is an medium-sized tree (family Fabaceae, subfamily Mimosoideae), that has been intorcuded around the world. It is a noxious invasive species in Africa, Asia, and the Arabian Peninsula ...
  • Co-occurring predators increase biotic resistance against an invasive prey 

    Skein, L.; Alexander, M.E.; Robinson, T.B. (2020)
    The presence of multiple predators can lead to variation in predator behavior and ultimately altered risk for shared prey. This concept has seldom been accounted for in studies that consider predator-driven biotic resistance ...
  • Dietary observations of four southern African agamid lizards (Agamidae) 

    Tan, W.C.; Herrel, A.; Measey, J. (2020)
    Analysis of stomach contents can provide insights into foraging mode, habitat use, and dietary specialization of animals. In this paper, we make observations on the poorly known diet of four southern African agamid species, ...
  • Horizon scanning for South African biodiversity: a need for social engagement as well as science 

    Seymour, C.L.; Gillson, L.; Child, M.; Tolley, K.A.; Curie, J.; da Silva, J.M.; Alexander, G.J.; Anderson, P.; Downs, C.T.; Egoh, B.; Ehlers Smith, D.A.; Ehlers, Y.C.; Esler, K.J.; O’farrell, P.J.; Skowno, A.L.; Suleman, E.; Veldtman, R. (2020)
    A horizon scan was conducted to identify emerging and intensifying issues for biodiversity conservation in South Africa over the next 5–10 years. South African biodiversity experts submitted 63 issues of which ten were ...
  • Invasion syndromes: a systematic approach for predicting biological invasions and facilitating effective management 

    Novoa, A.; Richardson, D.M.; Pyšek, P.; Meyerson, L.A.; Bacher, S.; Canavan, S.; Catford, J.A.; Čuda, J.; Essl, F.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Genovesi, P.; Hirsch, H.; Hui, C.; Jackson, M.C.; Kueffer, C.; Le Roux, J.J.; Measey, J.; Mohanty, N.P.; Moodley, D.; Müller-Schärer, H.; Packer, J.G.; Pergl, J.; Robinson, T.B.; Saul, W.C.; Shackleton, R.T.; Visser, V.; Weyl, O.L.F.; Yannelli, F.A.; Wilson, J.R.U. (2020)
    Our ability to predict invasions has been hindered by the seemingly idiosyncratic context-dependency of individual invasions. However, we argue that robust and useful generalisations in invasion science can be made by ...
