    • Fortune favours the bold: a higher predator reduces the impact of a native but not an invasive intermediate predator 

      Barrios-O’Neill, D.; Dick, J.T.A.; Emmerson, M.; Ricciardi, A.; MacIsaac, H.J.; Alexander, M.E.; Bovy, H. (2014)
      Emergent multiple predator effects (MPEs) might radically alter predictions of predatory impact that are based solely on the impact of individuals. In the context of biological invasions, determining if and how the ...
    • Invader Relative Impact Potential: a new metric to understand and predict the ecological impacts of existing, emerging and future invasive alien species

(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
      1. Predictions of the identities and ecological impacts of invasive alien species are critical for risk assessment, but presently we lack universal and standardized metrics that reliably predict the likelihood and degree ...
    • Invasion Science: A horizon scan of emerging challenges and oppurtunities

      Dickey, J.W.E.; Cuthbert, R.N.; South, J.; Britton, J.R.; Caffrey, J.; Chang, X.; Crane, K.; Coughlan, N.E.; Fadaei, E.; Farnsworth, K.D.; Ismar-Rebitz, S.M.H.; Joyce, P.W.S.; Julius, M.; Laverty, C.; Lucy, F.E.; MacIsaac, H.J.; McCard, M.; McGlade, C.L.O.; Reid, N.; Ricciardi, A.; Wasserman, R.J.; Weyl, O.L.F.; Dick, J.T.A. (2020)
      Invasive alien species continue to arrive in new locations with no abatement in rate, and thus greater predictive powers surrounding their ecological impacts are required. In particular, we need improved means of quantifying ...
