• Classifying the introduction pathways of alien species: are we moving in the right direction? 

      Faulkner, K.T.; Hulme, P.E.; Pagad, S.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Robertson, M.P. (2020)
      Alien species are introduced to new regions in many different ways and for different purposes. A number of frameworks have been developed to group such pathways of introduction into discrete categories in order to improve ...
    • The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)’s Post-2020 target on invasive alien species – what should it include and how should it be monitored? 

      Essl, F.; Latombe, G.; Lenzner, B.; Pagad, S.; Seebens, H.; Smith, K.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Genovesi, P. (2020)
      The year 2020 and the next few years are critical for the development of the global biodiversity policy agenda until the mid-21st century, with countries agreeing to a Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework under the ...
    • Crossing frontiers in tackling pathways of biological invasions 

      Essl, F.; Bacher, S.; Blackburn, T.M.; Booy, O.; Brundu, G.; Brunel, S.; Cardoso, A.C.; Eschen, R.; Gallardo, B.; Galil, B.; Garcia-Berthou, E.; Genovesi, P.; Groom, Q.; Harrower, C.; Hulme, P.E.; Katsanevakis, S.; Kenis, M.; Kuhn, I.; Kumschick, S.; Martinou, A.F.; Nentwig, W.; O'Flynn, C.; Pagad, S.; Pergl, J.; Pysek, P.; Rabitsch, W.; Richardson, D.M.; Roques, A.; Roy, H.E.; Scalera, R.; Schindler, S.; Seebens, H.; Vanderhoeven, S.; Vila, M.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Zenetos, A.; Jeschke, J.M. (Oxford University Press, 2015)
      Substantial progress has been made in understanding how pathways underlie and mediate biological invasions. However, key features of their role in invasions remain poorly understood, available knowledge is widely scattered, ...
    • Drivers of the relative richness of naturalized and invasive plant species on Earth 

      Essl, F.; Dawson, W; Kreft, H.; Pergl, J.; Pyšek, P.; Van Kleunen, M.; Weigelt, P.; Mang, T.; Dullinger, S.; Lenzner, B.; Moser, D.; Maurel, N.; Seebens, H.; Stein, A.; Weber, E.; Chatelain, C.; Inderjit; Genovesi, P.; Kartesz, J.; Morozova, O.; Nishino, M.; Nowak, P.; Pagad, S.; Shu, W.-S.; Winter, M. (2019)
      Biological invasions are a defining feature of the Anthropocene, but the factors that determine the spatially uneven distribution of alien plant species are still poorly understood. Here, we present the first global analysis ...
    • Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools. 

      Sebeens, H.; Blackburn, T.M.; Dyer, E.E.; Genovesi, P.; Hulme, P.E.; Jeschke, J.M.; Pagad, S.; Pyšek, P.; van Kleunen, M.; Winter, M.; Ansong, M.; Arianoutsou, M.; Bacher, S.; Blasius, B.; Brockerhoff, E.G.; Brundu, G.; Capinha, C.; Causton, C.E.; Celesti-Grapow, L.; Dawson, W.; Dullinger, S.; Economo, E.P.; Fuentes, N.; Guénard, B.; Jäger, H.; Kartesz, J.; Kenis, M.; Kühn, I.; Lenzner, B.; Liebhold, A.M.; Mosena, A.; Moser, D.; Nentwig, W.; Nishino, M.; Pearman, D.; Pergl, J.; Rabitsch, W.; Rojas-Sandoval, J.; Roques, A.; Rorke, S.; Rossinelli, S.; Roy, H.E.; Scalera, R.; Schindler, S.; Štajerová, K.; Tokarska-Guzik, B.; Walker, K.; Ward, D.F.; Yamanaka, T.; Essl, F. (National Academy of Science, 2018)
      Our ability to predict the identity of future invasive alien species is largely based upon knowledge of prior invasion history. Emerging alien species—those never encountered as aliens before—therefore pose a significant ...
    • A workflow for standardising and integrating alien species distribution data 

      Seebens, H.; Clarke, D.A.; Groom, Q.; Wilson, J.R.U.; García-Berthou, E.; Kühn, I.; Roigé, M.; Pagad, S.; Essl, F.; Vicente, J.; Winter, M.; McGeoch, M. (2020)
      Biodiversity data are being collected at unprecedented rates. Such data often have significant value for purposes beyond the initial reason for which they were collected, particularly when they are combined and collated ...
