Advancing impact prediction and hypothesis testing in invasion ecology using a comparative functional response approach
Invasion ecology urgently requires predictive methodologies that can forecast the ecological impacts of existing, emerging and potential invasive species. We argue that many ecologically damaging invaders are characterised ...
Defining the impact of non-native species
(Wiley Periodicals, Inc. on behalf of the Society for Conservation Biology, 2014)
Non-native species cause changes in the ecosystems to which they are introduced. These changes, or some of them, are usually termed impacts; they can be manifold and potentially damaging to ecosystems and biodiversity. ...
Comparing determinants of alien bird impacts across two continents: implications for risk assessment and management
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014)
Invasive alien species can have serious adverse impacts on both the environment and the economy. Being able to predict the impacts of an alien species could assist in preventing or reducing these impacts. This study aimed ...
A unified classification on alien species based on the magnitude of their environmental impacts
(Public Library of Science, 2014-05-06)
Species moved by human activities beyond the limits of their native geographic ranges into areas in which they do not naturally occur (termed aliens) can cause a broad range of significant changes to recipient ecosystems; ...
