• Does origin determine environmental impacts? Not for bamboos 

      Canavan, S.; Kumschick, S.; Le Roux, J.J.; Richardson, D.M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (New Phytologist Trust, 2019)
      Societal Impact Statement: Non‐native species can cause considerable negative impacts in natural ecosystems. Such impacts often are directly due to the fact that these species occur in habitats where they did not evolve. ...

      The family Cactaceae Juss. contains some of the most widespread and damaging invasive alien plant species in the world, with Australia (39 species), South Africa (35) and Spain (24) being the main hotspots of invasion. The ...
    • Invasive alien plants infiltrate bird-mediated shrub nucleation processes in arid savanna 

      Milton, S.J.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Richardson, D.M.; Seymour, C.L.; Dean, W.R.J.; Iponga, D.M.; Procheş, Ş. (Blackwell, 2007)

    • Stronger regional biosecurity is essential to prevent hundreds of harmful biological invasions 

      Faulkner, K.T.; Robertson, M.P.; Wilson, J.R.U. (2020)
      Biological invasions often transcend political boundaries, but the capacity of countries to prevent invasions varies. How this variation in biosecurity affects the invasion risks posed to the countries involved is unclear. ...
