(National Academy of Science, 2015-06-09)
      Conservation scientists and practitioners have long recognized that not all non-native species pose a threat to biodiversity, yet some ecologists still fail to grasp this message (1). The conclusions drawn by Thomas and ...
    • A conceptual framework for range-expanding species that track human-induced environmental change 

      Essl, F.; Dullinger, S.; Genovesi, P.; Hulme, P.E.; Jeschke, J.M.; Katsanevakis, S.; Kühn, I.; Lenzner, B.; Pauchard, A.; Pyšek, P.; Rabitsch, W.; Richardson, D.M.; Seebens, H.; van Kleunen, M.; van der Putten, W.H.; Vilà, M.; Bacher, S. (2019)
      For many species, human-induced environmental changes are important indirect drivers of range expansion into new regions. We argue that it is important to distinguish the range dynamics of such species from those that occur ...
    • Drivers of future alien species impacts: an expert-based assessment

(2020)
      Understanding the likely future impacts of biological invasions is crucial yet highly challenging given the multiple relevant environmental, socio-economic and societal contexts and drivers. In the absence of quantitative ...
    • EMAPi 2015: Highlighting links between science and management of alien plant invasions 

      Daehler, C.C.; van Kleunen, M.; Pysek, P.; Richardson, D.M. (Pensoft Publishers, 2016)
    • Movement, impacts and management of plant distributions in response to climate change: insights from invasions 

      Caplat, P.; Cheptou, P.-O.; Diez, J.; Guisan, A.; Larson, B.M.H.; Macdougall, A.S.; Peltzer, D.A.; Richardson, D.M.; Shea, K.; van Kleunen, M.; Zhang, R.; Buckley, Y.M. (Nordic Society Oikos, 2013)
      Prediction and management of species responses to climate change is an urgent but relatively young research field. Therefore, climate change ecology must by necessity borrow from other fields. Invasion ecology is particularly ...
    • Scientists' warning on invasive alien species 

      Pyšek, P.; Hulme, P.E.; Simberloff, D.; Bacher, S.; Blackburn, T.M.; Carlton, J.T.; Dawson, W.; Essl, F.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Genovesi, P.; Jeschke, J.M.; Kuhn, I.; Liebhold, A.M.; Mandrak, N.E.; Meyerson, L.A.; Pauchard, A.; Pergl, J.; Roy, H.E.; Seebens, H.; van Kleunen, M.; Vila, M.; Wingfield, M.J.; Richardson, D.M. (2020)
      Biological invasions are a global consequence of an increasingly connected world and the rise in human population size. The numbers of invasive alien species - the subset of alien species that spread widely in areas where ...
    • South Africa as a donor of naturalised and invasive plants to other parts of the world 

      Pyšek, P.; Pergl, J.; van Kleunen, M.; Dawson, W.; Essl, F.; Kreft, H.; Weigelt, P.; Wilson, J.R.; Winter, M.; Richardson, D.M. (2020)
      This chapter provides the first assessment of South African native vascular plants as naturalised and invasive species in other parts of the world. For naturalised species, Global Naturalized Alien Flora (GloNAF) data were ...
    • Tall-statured grasses: a useful functional group for invasion science 

      Canavan, S.; Meyerson, L.A.; Packer, J.G.; Pysek, P.; Maurel, N.; Lozano, V.; Richardson, D.M.; Brundu, G.; Canavan, K.; Cicatelli, A.; Cuda, J.; Dawson, W.; Essl, F.; Guarino, F.; Guo, W.-Y.; van Kleunen, M.; Kreft, H.; Lambertini, C.; Pergl, J.; Skalova, H.; Soreng, R.J.; Visser, V.; Vorontsova, M.S.; Weigelt, P.; Winter, M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Springer, 2019)
      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 ...
    • Which taxa are alien? Criteria, applications, and uncertainties 

      Essl, F.; Bacher, S.; Genovesi, P.; Hulme, P.E.; Jeschke, J.M.; Katsanevakis, S.; Kowarik, I.; Kuhn, I.; Pysek, P.; Rabitsch, W.; Schindler, S.; van Kleunen, M.; Vila, M.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Richardson, D.M. (Oxford University Press, 2018)
      Human activities such as the transport of species to new regions and modifications of the environment are increasingly reshaping the distribution of biota. Accordingly, developing robust, repeatable, and consistent definitions ...
