Invasion debt – quantifying future biological invasions
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2016)
Aim We develop a framework for quantifying invasions based on lagged trends in invasions (‘invasion debt’) with the aim of identifying appropriate metrics to quantify delayed responses at different invasion stages – from ...
Invasive plants as drivers of regime shifts: identifying high-priority invaders that alter feedback relationships
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014)
Aim A major challenge for invasion ecology is to identify high-impact invaders to guide prioritization of management interventions. We argue that species with the potential to cause regime shifts (altered states of ecosystem ...
Home away from home - objective mapping of high-risk source areas for plant introductions
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2007-05)
Prevention is the best way to slow the escalation of problems associated with biological invasions. Screening of potential introductions is widely applied for assessing the risk of species becoming invasive. Despite advances ...
Co-introduction vs ecological fitting as pathways to the establishment of effective mutualisms during biological invasions
(New Phytologist Trust, 2017)
Interactions between non-native plants and their mutualists are often disrupted upon introduction to new environments. Using legume–rhizobium mutualistic interactions as an example, we discuss two pathways that can influence ...
