• Invasive alien plants infiltrate bird-mediated shrub nucleation processes in arid savanna 

      Milton, S.J.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Richardson, D.M.; Seymour, C.L.; Dean, W.R.J.; Iponga, D.M.; Procheş, Ş. (Blackwell, 2007)
      1 The cultivation and dissemination of alien ornamental plants increases their potential to invade. More specifically, species with bird-dispersed seeds can potentially infiltrate natural nucleation processes in ...
    • Mutualistic interactions and biological invasions 

      Traveset, A.; Richardson, D.M. (Annual Reviews, 2014)
      Mutualisms structure ecosystems and mediate their functioning. They also enhance invasions of many alien species. Invasions disrupt native mutualisms, often leading to population declines, reduced biodiversity, and altered ...
    • Reproductive biology of Australian acacias: important mediator of invasiveness? 

      Gibson, M.R.; Richardson, D.M.; Marchante, E.; Marchante, H.; Rodger, J.G.; Stone, G.N.; Byrne, M.; Fuentes-Ramires, A.; George, N.; Harris, C.; Johnson, S.D.; Le Roux, J.J; Miller, J.T.; Murphy, D.J.; Pauw, A.; Prescott, M.N.; Wandrag, E.M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2011)
      Aim Reproductive traits are important mediators of establishment and spread of introduced species, both directly and through interactions with other life-history traits and extrinsic factors. We identify features of the ...
    • Reproductive potential and seedling establishment of the invasive alien tree Schinus molle (Anacardiaceae) in South Africa 

      Iponga, D.M; Milton, S.J.; Richardson, D.M. (Ecological Society of Australia, 2009)
      Schinus molle (Peruvian pepper tree) was introduced to South Africa more than 150 years ago and was widely planted, mainly along roads. Only in the last two decades has the species become naturalized and invasive in some ...
