• Different environmental drivers of alien tree invasion affect different life-stages and operate at different spatial scales 

      Vicente, J.R.; Kueffer, C.; Richardson, D.M.; Vaz, A.S.; Cabral, J.A.; Hui, C.; Araujo, M.B.; Kuhn, I.; Kull, C.A.; Verburg, P.H.; Marchante, E.; Honrado, J.P. (Elsevier B.V., 2019)
      Identifying the key factors driving invasion processes is crucial for designing and implementing appropriate management strategies. In fact, the importance of (model-based) prevention and early detection was highlighted ...
    • Explaining people’s perceptions of invasive alien species: A conceptual framework. 

      Shackleton, R.T.; Richardson, D.M.; Shackleton, C.M.; Bennett, B.; Crowley, S.L.; Dehnen-Schmutz, K.; Estevez, R.A.; Fischer, A.; Kueffer, C.; Kull, C.A.; Marchante, E.; Novoa, A.; Potgieter, L.J.; Vaas, J.; Vaz, A.S.; Larson, B.M.H. (Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
      Human perceptions of nature and the environment are increasingly being recognised as important for environmental management and conservation. Understanding people's perceptions is crucial for understanding behaviour and ...
    • Global effects of non-native tree species on multiple ecosystem services 

      Castro-Diez, P.; Vaz, A.S.; Silva, J.S.; Loo, M.; Alonso, A.; Aponte, C.; Bayon, A.; Bellingham, P.J.; Chiuffo, M.C.; DiManno, N.; Julian, K.; Kandert, S.; La Porta, N.; Marchante, H.; Maule, H.G.; Mayfield, M.M.; Metcalfe, D.; Monteverdi, M.C.; Nunez, M.A.; Ostertag, R.; Parker, I.M.; Peltzer, D.A.; Potgieter, L.J.; Raymundo, M.; Rayome, D.; Reisman-Berman, O.; Richardson, D.M.; Roos, R.E.; Saldana, A.; Shackleton, R.T.; Torres, A.; Trudgen, M.; Urban, J.; Vicente, J.R.; Vila, M.; Ylioja, T.; Zenni, R.D.; Godoy, O. (2019)
      Non-native tree (NNT) species have been transported worldwide to create or enhance services that are fundamental for human well‐being, such as timber provision, erosion control or ornamental value; yet NNTs can also produce ...
    • Integrating ecosystem services and disservices: insights from plant invasions. 

      Vaz, A.S.; Kueffer, C.; Kull, C.A.; Richardson, D.M.; Vicente, J.R.; Kuhn, I.; Schroter, M.; Hauck, J.; Bonn, A.; Honrado, J.P. (Elsevier B.V., 2017)
      There is growing interest in ecosystem disservices, i.e. the negative effects of ecosystems on humans. The focus on disservices has been controversial because of the lack of clarity on how to disentangle ecosystem services ...
    • The progress of interdisciplinarity in invasion science 

      Vaz, A.S.; Kueffer, C.; Kull, C.A.; Richardson, D.M.; Schindler, S.; Munoz-Pajares, A.J.; Vicente, J.R.; Martins, J.; Hui, C.; Kuhn, I.; Honrado, J.P. (Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, 2017)
      Interdisciplinarity is needed to gain knowledge of the ecology of invasive species and invaded ecosystems, and of the human dimensions of biological invasions. We combine a quantitative literature review with a qualitative ...
    • Using the “regime shift” concept in addressing social-ecological change 

      Kull, C.A.; Kueffer, C.; Richardson, D.M.; Vaz, A.S.; Vicente, J.R.; Honrado, J.P. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2018)
      ‘Regime shift’ has emerged as a key concept in the environmental sciences. The concept has roots in complexity science and its ecological applications, and is increasingly applied to intertwined social and ecological ...
