Plant invasions are a serious threat to natural and semi-natural ecosystems worldwide. Most management-orientated research on invasions focuses on invaders that are already widespread and often have major impacts. This ...
Potential impacts of future land use and climate change on the Red List status of the Proteaceae in the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2005)
Using spatial predictions of future threats to biodiversity, we assessed for the first time the relative potential impacts of future land use and climate change on the threat status of plant species. We thus estimated how ...
Niche-based modelling as a tool for predicting the risk of alien plant invasions at a global scale
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2005-12)
Predicting the probability of successful establishment of plant species by matching climatic variables has considerable potential for incorporation in early warning systems for the management of biological invasions. We ...
