    • Biological Invasions in South Africa: an overview 

      van Wilgen, B.W.; Measey, J.; Richardson, D.M.; Wilson, J.R.; Zengeya, T.A. (2020 2020)
      South Africa has much to offer as a location for the study of biological invasions. It is an ecologically diverse country comprised of nine distinct terrestrial biomes, four recognised marine ecoregions, and two sub-Antarctic ...
    • Emerging infectious diseases and biological invasions: a call for a One Health collaboration in science and management 

      Ogden, N.H.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Richardson, D.M.; Hui, C.; Davies, S.J.; Kumschick, S.; Le Roux, J.J.; Measey, J.; Saul, W.-C.; Pulliam, J.R.C. (The Royal Society Publishing, 2019)
      The study and management of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and of biological invasions both address the ecology of human-associated biological phenomena in a rapidly changing world. However, the two fields work mostly ...
    • A framework for engaging stakeholders on the management of alien species 

      Novoa, A.; Shackleton, R.; Canavan, S.; Cybele, C.; Davies, S.J.; Dehnen-Schmutz, K.; Fried, J.; Gaertner, M.; Geerts, S.; Griffiths, C.L.; Kaplan, H.; Kumschick, S.; Le Maitre, D.C.; Measey, G.J.; Nunes, A.L.; Richardson, D.M.; Robinson, T.B.; Touza, J.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Elsevier Ltd., 2018)
      Alien species can have major ecological and socioeconomic impacts in their novel ranges and so effective management actions are needed. However, management can be contentious and create conflicts, especially when stakeholders ...
    • Invasion syndromes: a systematic approach for predicting biological invasions and facilitating effective management 

      Novoa, A.; Richardson, D.M.; Pyšek, P.; Meyerson, L.A.; Bacher, S.; Canavan, S.; Catford, J.A.; Čuda, J.; Essl, F.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Genovesi, P.; Hirsch, H.; Hui, C.; Jackson, M.C.; Kueffer, C.; Le Roux, J.J.; Measey, J.; Mohanty, N.P.; Moodley, D.; Müller-Schärer, H.; Packer, J.G.; Pergl, J.; Robinson, T.B.; Saul, W.C.; Shackleton, R.T.; Visser, V.; Weyl, O.L.F.; Yannelli, F.A.; Wilson, J.R.U. (2020)
      Our ability to predict invasions has been hindered by the seemingly idiosyncratic context-dependency of individual invasions. However, we argue that robust and useful generalisations in invasion science can be made by ...
    • Mechanistic reconciliation of community and invasion ecology 

      Latombe, G.; Richardson, D.M.; McGeoch, M.A.; Altwegg, R.; Catford, J.A.; Chase, J.M.; Courchamp, F.; Esler, K.J.; Jeschke, J.M.; Landi, P.; Measey, J.; Midgley, G.F.; Minoarivelo, H.O.; Rodger, J.G.; Hui, C. (2021)
      Community and invasion ecology have mostly grown independently. There is substantial overlap in the processes captured by different models in the two fields, and various frameworks have been developed to reduce this ...
    • Potential Futures of Biological Invasions in South Africa 

      Wilson, J.R.; Measey, J.; Richardson, D.M.; van Wilgen, B.W.; Zengeya, T.A. (2020)
      Biological invasions are having a moderately negative impact on human livelihoods and the environment in South Africa, but the situation is worsening. Predicting future trends is fraught with many assumptions, so this ...
    • Science and education at the Centre for Invasion Biology 

      Davies, S.J.; Measey, G.J.; du Plessis, D.; Richardson, D.M. (Springer International Publishing, 2016)
      South Africa has severe problems caused by biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems, and a long history of managing biological invasions. However, appreciation and systematic study of the ...
    • A taxonomically and geographically constrained information base limits non-native reptile and amphibian risk assessment: a systematic review 

      van Wilgen, N.J.; Gillespie, M.S.; Richardson, D.M.; Measey, J. (Creative Commons CC-BY 4.0, 2018)
      For many taxa, new records of non-native introductions globally occur at a near exponential rate. We undertook a systematic review of peer-reviewed publications on non-native herpetofauna, to assess the information ...
    • The Role of Environmental Factors in Promoting and Limiting Biological Invasions in South Africa 

      Wilson, J.R.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Geerts, S.; Hoffmann, M.T.; MacFadyen, S.; Measey, J.; Mills, A.; Richardson, D.M.; Robertson, M.P.; van Wilgen, B.W. (2020)
      This chapter provides an overview of the researchers and research initiatives relevant to invasion science in South Africa over the past 130 years, profiling some of the more recent personalities, particularly those who ...
    • The world needs BRICS countries to build capacity in invasion science 

      Measey, J.; Visser, V.; Dgebuadze, Y.; Inderjit; Li, B.; Dechoum, M.; Ziller, S.R.; Richardson, D.M. (2019)
      Developed countries are producing policies to reduce the flow of invasive species and control or eradicate existing invasions, but most developing countries are under-resourced to tackle either aspect without help. Emerging ...
