Natural dispersal to sub-Antarctic Marion Island of two arthropod species
Distinguishing between species that are recent natural colonists, recent anthropogenic introductions, or previously unknown, but long-term resident native species, is a challenge for those who manage the conservation of ...
Stakeholder perceptions and practices regarding Prosopis (mesquite) invasions and management in South Africa
Invasive alien trees impact the environment and human livelihoods. The human dimensions of such invasions are less well understood than the ecological aspects, and this is hindering the development of effective management ...
Soft touch or heavy hand? Legislative approaches for preventing invasions: insights from cacti in South Africa
(Weeds Science Society of America, 2015)
The rate of transportation, introduction, dissemination and spread of non-native species is increasing despite growing global awareness of the extent and impact of biological invasions. Effective policies are needed to ...
Historical range contraction, and not taxonomy, explains the contemporary genetic structure of the Australian tree, Acacia dealbata Link
Irrespective of its causes, strong population genetic structure indicates a lack of gene flow. Understanding the processes that underlie such structure, and the spatial patterns it causes, is valuable for conservation ...
The role of invasive alien species in shaping local livelihoods and human well-being: A review
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
Invasive alien species are a well-recognised driver of social-ecological change globally. Much research has focused on ecological impacts, but the role of invasive species for livelihoods and human well-being is less well ...
Tall-statured grasses: a useful functional group for invasion science
Species in the grass family (Poaceae) have caused some of the most damaging invasions in natural ecosystems, but plants in this family are also among the most widely used by humans. Therefore, it is important to be able ...
