Division of labour brings greater benefits to clones of Carpobrotus edulis in the non-native range: evidence for rapid adaptive evolution
(Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC BY), 2016)
Why some species become invasive while others do not is a central research request in biological invasions. Clonality has been suggested as an attribute that could contribute to plant invasiveness. Division of labor is an ...
Invasive plants threaten the least mobile butterflies in Switzerland
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
Aim Biological invasions are today the second-largest global threat for biodiversity. Once introduced, exotic plant species can modify ecosystem composition, structure and dynamics, eventually driving native species to ...
Climate change leads to increasing population density and impacts of a key island invader
(Ecological Society of America, 2018)
The considerable threats of invasive rodents to island biodiversity are likely to be compounded by climate change. Forecasts for such interactions have been most pronounced for the Southern Ocean islands where ameliorating ...
Ecological impacts of alien species: Quantification, scope, caveats, and recommendations
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Despite intensive research during the past decade on the effects of alien species, invasion science still lacks the capacity to accurately predict the impacts of those species and, therefore, to provide timely advice to ...
Level of environmental threat posed by horticultural trade in Cactaceae
(Society of Conservation Biology, 2017)
Ornamental horticulture has been identified as an important threat to plant biodiversity and is a major pathway for plant invasions worldwide. In this context, the family Cactaceae is particularly challenging because it ...
Genetic analysis along an invasion pathway reveals endemic cryptic taxa, but a single species with little population structure in the introduced range
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Aim The invasion pathways of pest arthropods can be traced using genetic tools to develop an understanding of the processes that have shaped successful invasions and to inform both pest management and conservation strategies ...
