• Alien plants as mediators of ecosystem services and disservices in urban systems: a global view 

      Potgieter, L.J.; Gaertner, M.; Kueffer, C.; Larson, B.M.H.; Livingstone, S.W.; O'Farrell, P.J.; Richardson, D.M. (Springer, 2017)
      Urban areas have unique assemblages of species which are governed by novel ecological processes. People living in these environments have specific needs and demands in terms of ecosystem services (ES). Urban ecosystems are ...
    • Linking functional traits to impacts of invasive plant species: a case study. 

      te Beest, M.; Esler, K.J.; Richardson, D.M. (Springer, 2015)
      Our understanding of the link between plant functional traits and ecological impact of invasive alien plant species is fragmentary and the mechanisms leading to impacts are poorly understood. Moreover, current knowledge ...
    • Widespread plant species: natives versus aliens in our changing world 

      Stohlgren, T.J.; Pysek, P.; Kartesz, J.; Nishino, M.; Pauchard, A.; Winter, M.; Pino, J.; Richardson, D.M.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Murray, B.R.; Phillips, M.L.; Ming-yang, L.; Celesti-Grapow, L.; Font, X. (Springer, 2011)
      Estimates of the level of invasion for a region are traditionally based on relative numbers of native and alien species. However, alien species differ dramatically in the size of their invasive ranges. Here we present ...
