Interactions among multiple invasive animals
(Ecological Society of America, 2015)
With accelerating rates of invasion being documented in many ecosystems, communities of interacting invasive species are becoming increasingly common. Opposing theories predict that invaders can either hinder or promote ...
Niche differentiation among invasive crayfish and their impacts on ecosystem structure and functioning
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014)
1. Many aquatic ecosystems sustain multiple invasive species and interactions among them have important implications for ecosystem structure and functioning. Here, we examine interactions among two pairs of invasive crayfish ...
Trophic overlap between fish and riparian spiders: potential impacts of an invasive fish on terrestrial consumers
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2016)
Studies on resource sharing and partitioning generally consider species that occur in the same habitat. However, subsidies between linked habitats, such as streams and riparian zones, create potential for competition between ...
Dominance–diversity relationships in ant communities differ with invasion
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2018)
The relationship between levels of dominance and species richness is highly contentious, especially in ant communities. The dominance-impoverishment rule states that high levels of dominance only occur in species-poor ...
Tall-statured grasses: a useful functional group for invasion science
Species in the grass family (Poaceae) have caused some of the most damaging invasions in natural ecosystems, but plants in this family are also among the most widely used by humans. Therefore, it is important to be able ...
Using network theory to understand and predict biological invasions
Understanding and predicting biological invasions is challenging because of the complexity of many interacting players. A holistic approach is needed with the potential to simultaneously consider all relevant effects and ...
