Predicted decrease in global climate suitability masks regional complexity of invasive fruit fly species response to climate change
Climate change affects the rate of insect invasions as well as the abundance, distribution and impacts of such invasions on a global scale. Among the principal analytical approaches to predicting and understanding future ...
The prognosis for Ailanthus altissima (Simaroubaceae; tree of heaven) as an invasive species in South Africa; insights from its performance elsewhere in the world
(Elsevier B.V., 2017)
South Africa has a major problem with invasive plant species. Many species have long residence times, are well established, and have large invasive ranges, whereas others are still in the early stages of invasion. Predicting ...
Range contraction to a higher elevation: the likely future of the montane vegetation in South Africa and Lesotho
Global climate change is a major challenge for the future with serious potential impacts on biodiversity. Biodiversity in mountains is particularly vulnerable as many montane species are adapted to narrow microhabitats, ...
Alnus glutinosa (Betulaceae) in South Africa: invasive potential and management options
Invasive alien plants cause major environmental and economic impacts and preventing the establishment and spread of emerging invaders is crucial. Black Alder (Alnus glutinosa) is well established as a widespread invader ...
