Protected-area boundaries as filters of plant invasions
(Society for Conservation Biology, 2011)
Human land uses surrounding protected areas provide propagules for colonization of these areas by non-native species, and corridors between protected-area networks and drainage systems of rivers provide pathways for ...
Plant invasion science in protected areas: progress and priorities
Invasive alien species are a major problem for managers of protected areas (PAs) worldwide. Until the 1980s biological invasions were widely considered to be largely confined to anthropogenically disturbed sites and the ...
EMAPi 2015: Highlighting links between science and management of alien plant invasions
(Pensoft Publishers, 2016)
Framework and guidelines for implementing the proposed IUCN Environmental Impact Classification for Alien Taxa (EICAT)
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015)
Recently, Blackburn et al. (2014) developed a simple, objective and transparent method for classifying alien taxa in terms of the magnitude of their detrimental environmental impacts in recipient areas. Here, we present a ...
Geographical and taxonomic biases in invasion ecology
(Elsevier Ltd., 2008)
Invasive alien species come from most taxonomic groups, and invasion biology is searching for robust cross-taxon generalizations and principles. An analysis of 2670 papers dealing with 892 invasive species showed that all ...
Riparian vegetation: degradation, alien plant invasions, and restoration prospects
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2007)
Rivers are conduits for materials and energy; this, the frequent and intense disturbances that these systems experience, and their narrow, linear nature, create problems for conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem ...
Fifty years of invasion ecology – the legacy of Charles Elton
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
The publication, in 1958, of Charles Elton’s book The ecology of invasions by animals and plants launched the systematic study of biological invasions. Invasion ecology has grown to become an important multi-disciplinary ...
A proposed unified framework for biological invasions
(Elsevier Ltd., 2011-07)
There has been a dramatic growth in research on biological invasions over the past 20 years, but a mature understanding of the field has been hampered because invasion biologists concerned with different taxa and different ...
Historical legacies accumulate to shape future biodiversity in an era of rapid global change
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015)
Aim Biodiversity responses to changing environmental forcing on species are often characterized by considerable time-lags (= relaxation times). Although changes to the occurrence and abundance of species likely have cascading ...
Crossing frontiers in tackling pathways of biological invasions
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Substantial progress has been made in understanding how pathways underlie and mediate biological invasions. However, key features of their role in invasions remain poorly understood, available knowledge is widely scattered, ...
