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 ...
Species-based risk assessment for biological invasions: advances and challenges
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2013)
Aim An increasingly important component of invasive species management involves the formal assessment of risks associated with particular species becoming invasive and causing impact. We evaluated recent developments in ...
Home away from home - objective mapping of high-risk source areas for plant introductions
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2007-05)
Prevention is the best way to slow the escalation of problems associated with biological invasions. Screening of potential introductions is widely applied for assessing the risk of species becoming invasive. Despite advances ...
Niche-based modelling as a tool for predicting the risk of alien plant invasions at a global scale
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2005-12)
Predicting the probability of successful establishment of plant species by matching climatic variables has considerable potential for incorporation in early warning systems for the management of biological invasions. We ...
Alien invaders and reptile traders: what drives the live animal trade in South Africa?
(The Zoological Society of London, 2010)
The global trade in reptiles for pets has grown rapidly in recent decades. Some species introduced by the pet trade have established and become invasive, for example the Burmese python in Florida. Although there are ...
Invasive species, environmental change and management, and health
(Annual Reviews, 2010)
Invasive species are a major element of global change and are contributing to biodiversity loss, ecosystem degradation, and impairment of ecosystem services worldwide. Research is shedding new light on the ecological and ...
Comparing impacts of alien plants and animals in Europe using a standard scoring system
(British Ecological Society, 2015-06)
1. Alien species can change the recipient environment in various ways, and some of them cause considerable damage. Understanding such impacts is crucial to direct management actions. This study addresses the following ...
Developing a framework of minimum standards for the risk assessment of alien species.
(British Ecological Society, 2018)
1. Biological invasions are a threat to biodiversity, society and the economy. There is an urgent need to provide evidence-based assessments of the risks posed by invasive alien species (IAS) to prioritize action. Risk ...
The roles of climate, phylogenetic relatedness, introduction effort, and reproductive traits in the establishment of non-native reptiles and amphibians
(Society for Conservation Biology, 2012)
We developed a method to predict the potential of non-native reptiles and amphibians (herpetofauna) to establish populations. This method may inform efforts to prevent the introduction of invasive non-native species. We ...
Lessons learned: how can we manage the invasion risk from biofuels?
(Future Science, 2013)
