Diet and trophic niche of the endangered fish Garra ghorensis in three Jordanian populations
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Garra ghorensis is a small riverine cyprinid fish endemic to the southern Dead Sea that is endangered through habitat loss and invasive species. Here, their diet and trophic niche were assessed in three Jordanian populations: ...
Dietary niche constriction when invaders meet natives: evidence from freshwater decapods
(British Ecological Society, 2016)
1. Invasive species are a key driver of global environmental change, with frequently strong negative consequences for native biodiversity and ecosystem processes. Understanding competitive interactions between invaders and ...
Patterns of trophic niche divergence between invasive and native fishes in wild communities are predictable from mesocosm studies
(John Wiley & Sons, 2015)
1. Ecological theory attempts to predict how impacts for native species arise from biological invasions. A fundamental question centres on the feeding interactions of invasive and native species: whether invasion will ...
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, ...
