Phenotypic plasticity mediates climate change responses among invasive and indigenous arthropods
(The Royal Society, 2007)
Synergies between global change and biological invasion have been identified as a major potential threat to global biodiversity and human welfare. The global change-type drought characteristic of many temperate terrestrial ...
The absence of fire can cause a lag phase: The invasion dynamics of Banksia ericifolia (Proteaceae)
The transition from a species introduction to an invasion often spans many decades (a lag phase). However, few studies have determined the mechanisms underlying lag phases. Such a mechanistic understanding is vital if ...
Barriers to ecosystem restoration presented by soil legacy effects of invasive alien N2-fixing woody species: implications for ecological restoration
(Society for Ecological Restoration, 2018)
Impacts of invasive alien N2-fixing woody species and how they can persist as soil legacy effects after invasive species control are well appreciated, but how soil legacy effects can present barriers to restoration is ...
Deciphering the worldwide invasion of the Asian long-horned beetle: A recurrent invasion process from the native area together with a bridgehead effect
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2019)
Retracing introduction routes is crucial for understanding the evolutionary processes involved in an invasion, as well as for highlighting the invasion history of a species at the global scale. The Asian long‐horned beetle ...
Development of alien and invasive taxa lists for regulation of biological invasions in South Africa
Background: Lists are fundamental for guiding policy and management of biological invasions. The process of developing regulatory lists of alien and invasive taxa should be based on scientific evidence through an objective, ...
