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, ...
Native and naturalized range size in Pinus: Relative importance of biogeography, introduction effort and species traits
(Blackwell Publishing, 2012)
Aim Pine trees (genus Pinus) represent an ancient lineage, naturally occurring almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere, but introduced and widely naturalized in both hemispheres. As large trees of interest to ...
Naturalization of introduced plants: Ecological drivers of biogeographic patterns
(New Phytologist Trust, 2012)
The literature on biological invasions is biased in favour of invasive species – those that spread and often reach high abundance following introduction by humans. It is, however, also important to understand previous ...
Propagule pressure drives establishment of introduced freshwater fish: quantitative evidence from an irrigation network
(Ecological Society of America, 2013)
Propagule pressure is recognized as a fundamental driver of freshwater fish invasions, though few studies have quantified its role. Natural experiments can be used to quantify the role of this factor relative to others in ...
