Invasion debt – quantifying future biological invasions
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Aim We develop a framework for quantifying invasions based on lagged trends in invasions (‘invasion debt’) with the aim of identifying appropriate metrics to quantify delayed responses at different invasion stages – from ...
Does the legacy of historical biogeography shape current invasiveness in pines?
(New Phytologist Trust, 2016)
Why are some introduced species more successful at establishing and spreading than others? Until now, characteristics of extant species have been intensively investigated to answer this question. We propose to gain new ...
Experimental assessment of factors mediating the naturalization of a globally invasive tree on sandy coastal plains: a case study from Brazil
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
As all naturalized species are potential invaders, it is important to better understand the determinants of naturalization of alien plants. This study sought to identify traits that enable the alien tree Casuarina equisetifolia ...
Planted forests and invasive alien trees in Europe: A Code for managing existing and future plantings to mitigate the risk of negative impacts from invasions
(Pensoft Publishers, 2016)
Planted forests of alien tree species make significant contributions to the economy and provide multiple products and ecosystem services. On the other hand, non-native trees now feature prominently on the lists of invasive ...
Using counterfactuals to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of controlling biological invasions
(Ecological Society of America, 2016)
Prioritizing limited conservation funds for controlling biological invasions requires accurate estimates of the effectiveness of interventions to remove invasive species and their cost-effectiveness (cost per unit area ...
