Melaleuca parvistaminea Byrnes (Myrtaceae) in South Africa: Invasion risk and feasibility of eradication
We document and assess management options for the first reported invasion of Melaleuca parvistaminea Byrnes (initially identified asM. ericifolia) in the world, in the context of a South African wetland ecosystem. Delimitation ...
Scale-area curves: a tool for understanding the ecology and distribution of invasive tree species
Scale-area curves are increasingly used in ecology to predict population trajectories, based on the assumption that observed patterns are indicative of population dynamics. However, for introduced species, scale-area ...
Site-specific conditions influence plant naturalization: The case of alien Proteaceae in South Africa
The outcome of plant introductions is often considered in binary terms (invasive or non-invasive). However, most species experience a time lag before naturalization occurs, and many species become naturalized at some sites ...
The seed ecology of an ornamental wattle in South Africa - Why has Acacia elata not invaded a greater area?
Australian Acacia species introduced to South Africa as ornamentals have notably smaller invasive ranges than those introduced for forestry or dune stabilization.We asked whether the relatively small invasive extent of ...
