• Alien plants invade more phylogenetically clustered community types and cause even stronger clustering 

      Lososová, Z.; de Bello, F.; Chytrý, M.; Kühn, I.; Pyšek, P.; Sádlo, J.; Winter, M.; Zelený, D. (John Wiley & Sonns, Ltd., 2015)
      Aim Several hypotheses postulate that species invasion is affected by an interplay between the phylogenetic position of the invading species and the phylogenetic structure of the invaded community type. Some of them ...
    • Beta diversity of urban floras among European and non-European cities. 

      La Sorte, F.A.; Aronson, M.F.J.; Williams, N.S.G.; Celesti-Grapow, L.; Cilliers, S.; Clarkson, B.D.; Dolan, R.W.; Hipp, A.; Klotz, S.; Kuhn, I.; Pysek, P.; Siebert, S.; Winter, M. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2014)
      Aim Cities represent an ideal study system for assessing how intensive land-use change and biotic interchange have altered beta diversity at broad geographic extents. Here we test the hypothesis that floras in cities located ...
    • Boom-bust dynamics in biological invasions: towards an improved application of the concept 

      Strayer, D.L.; D'Antonio, C.M.; Essl, F.; Fowler, M.S.; Geist, J.; Hilt, S.; Jarić, I.; Jöhnk, K.; Jones, C.G.; Lambin, X.; Latzka, A.W.; Pergl, J.; Pyšek, P.; Robertson, P.; von Schmalensee, M.; Stefansson, R.A.; Wright, J.; Jeschke, J.M. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd/CNRS, 2017)
      Boom-bust dynamics – the rise of a population to outbreak levels, followed by a dramatic decline – have been associated with biological invasions and offered as a reason not to manage troublesome invaders. However, boom-bust ...
    • Developing a framework of minimum standards for the risk assessment of alien species. 

      Roy, H.E.; Rabitsch, W.; Scalera, R.; Stewart, A.; Gallardo, B.; Genovesi, P.; Essl, F.; Adriaens, T.; Bacher, S.; Booy, O.; Branquart, E.; Brunel, S.; Copp, G.H.; Dean, H.; D'hondt, B.; Josefsson, M.; Kenis, M.; Kettunen, M.; Linnamagi, M.; Lucy, F.; Martinou, A.; Moore, N.; Nentwig, W.; Nieto, A.; Pergl, J.; Peyton, J.; Roques, A.; Schindler, S.; Schönrogge, K.; Solarz, W.; Stebbing, P.D.; Trichkova, T.; Vanderhoeven, S.; van Valkenburg, J.; Zenetos, A. (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 ...
    • Diversity, biogeography and the global flows of alien amphibians and reptiles 

      Capinha, C.; Seebens, H.; Cassey, P.; Garcia-Diaz, P.; Lenzner, B.; Mang, T.; Moser, D.; Pysek, P.; Rodder, D.; Scalera, R.; Winter, M.; Dullinger, S.; Essl, F. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
      Aim: We introduce a high-quality global database of established alien amphibians and reptiles. We use this data set to analyse: (1) the global distribution; (2) the temporal dynamics; (3) the flows between native and ...
    • Ecological niche modelling of an invasive alien plant and its potential biological control agents 

      Trethowan, P.D.; Robertson, M.P.; McConnachie, A.J. (Elsevier B.V., 2011)
      Invasive alien plants are of concern in South Africa. Pompom weed (Campuloclinium macrocephalum) is currently invading the Grassland and Savannah biomes of South Africa and is likely to continue spreading in the southern ...
    • Intergrating invasive species policies across ornamental horticulture supply chains to prevent plant invasions. 

      Hulme, P.E.; Brundu, G.; Carboni, M.; Dehnen-Schmutz, K.; Dullinger, S.; Early, R.; Essl, F.; Gonzalez-Moreno, P.; Groom, Q.J.; Kueffer, C.; Kuhn, I.; Maurel, N.; Novoa, A.; Pergl, J.; Pysek, P.; Seebens, H.; Tanner, R.; Touza, J.M.; van Kleunen, M.; Vergrugge, L.N.H. (British Ecological Society, 2017)
      1. Ornamental horticulture is the primary pathway for invasive alien plant introductions. We critically appraise published evidence on the effectiveness of four policy instruments that tackle invasions along the horticulture ...
    • Invasion science and the global spread of SARS-CoV-2 

      Nunez, M.A.; Pauchard, A.; Ricciardi, A. (2020)
      Emerging infectious diseases, such as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), are driven by ecological and socioeconomic factors, and their rapid spread and devastating impacts mirror those of invasive species. Collaborations ...
    • Invasive Mesquite (Prosopis juliflora), an allergy and health challenge 

      Hussain, M.I.; Shackleton, R.T.; El-Keblawy, A.; Perez, M.D.T.; Gonzalez, L. (2020)
      Mesquite (Prosopis juliflora (Sw.) DC), is an medium-sized tree (family Fabaceae, subfamily Mimosoideae), that has been intorcuded around the world. It is a noxious invasive species in Africa, Asia, and the Arabian Peninsula ...
