• Contaminant organisms recorded on plant product imports to South Africa 1994–2019 

      Saccaggi, D.L.; Arendse, M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (2021)
      Biosecurity interception records are crucial data underlying efforts to predict and manage pest and pathogen introductions. Here we present a dataset containing information on imported plant products inspected by the South ...
    • Introduced and invasive cactus species: a global review 

      Novoa, A.; Le Roux, J.J.; Robertson, M.P.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Richardson, D.M. (Oxford University Press, 2015)
      Understanding which species are introduced and become invasive, and why, are central questions in invasion science. Comparative studies on model taxa have provided important insights, but much more needs to be done to ...
    • Invasion trajectory of alien trees: the role of introduction pathway and planting history 

      Donaldson, J.E.; Hui, C.; Richardson, D.M.; Robertson, M.P.; Webber, B.L.; Wilson, J.R.U. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2014)
      Global change is driving a massive rearrangement of the world’s biota. Trajectories of distributional shifts are shaped by species traits, the recipient environment and driving forces with many of the driving forces directly ...
    • Is invasion science moving towards agreed standards? The influence of selected frameworks 

      Wilson, J.R.U.; Datta, A.; Hirsch, H.; Keet, J.-H.; Mbobo, T.; Nkuna, K.V.; Nsikani, M.M.; Pyšek, P.; Richardson, D.M.; Zengeya, T.A.; Kumschick, S. (2020)
      The need to understand and manage biological invasions has driven the development of frameworks to circumscribe, classify, and elucidate aspects of the phenomenon. But how influential have these frameworks really been? To ...
    • Level of environmental threat posed by horticultural trade in Cactaceae 

      Novoa, A.; Le Roux, J.J.; Richardson, D.M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Society of Conservation Biology, 2017)
      Ornamental horticulture has been identified as an important threat to plant biodiversity and is a major pathway for plant invasions worldwide. In this context, the family Cactaceae is particularly challenging because it ...
