Drivers of species turnover vary with species commonness for native and alien plants with different residence times
(Ecological Society of America, 2018)
Communities comprising alien species with different residence times are natural experiments allowing the assessment of drivers of community assembly over time. Stochastic processes (such as dispersal and fluctuating ...
Indicators for monitoring biological invasions at a national level
(British Ecological Society, 2018)
1. A major challenge for the management of biological invasions is to ensure that data and information from basic inventories and ecological research are used alongside data from the monitoring and evaluation of interventions ...
Prioritising potential incursions for contingency planning: pathways, species, and sites in Durban (eThekwini), South Africa as an example
(Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY 4.0), 2019)
Increased trade and travel have resulted in an increasing rate of introduction of biological organisms to new regions. Urban environments, such as cities, are hubs for human activities facilitating the introduction of alien ...
Does origin determine environmental impacts? Not for bamboos
(New Phytologist Trust, 2019)
Societal Impact Statement: Non‐native species can cause considerable negative impacts in natural ecosystems. Such impacts often are directly due to the fact that these species occur in habitats where they did not evolve. ...
Cointroductions of Australian acacias and their rhizobial mutualists in the Southern Hemisphere
Aim Mutualisms are often disrupted for plants introduced to new ranges, yet many of these plants have managed to obtain effective mutualistic associations in their new ranges. There are two potential pathways for non-native ...
Global effects of non-native tree species on multiple ecosystem services
Non-native tree (NNT) species have been transported worldwide to create or enhance services that are fundamental for human well‐being, such as timber provision, erosion control or ornamental value; yet NNTs can also produce ...
