• Alien invaders and reptile traders: what drives the live animal trade in South Africa? 

      van Wilgen, N.J.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Elith, J.; Wintle, B.A.; Richardson, D.M. (The Zoological Society of London, 2010)
      The global trade in reptiles for pets has grown rapidly in recent decades. Some species introduced by the pet trade have established and become invasive, for example the Burmese python in Florida. Although there are ...
    • A framework to support alien species regulation: the Risk Analysis for Alien Taxa (RAAT) 

      Kumschick, S.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Foxcroft, L.C. (2020)
      Alien species are introduced to new regions in many different ways and for different purposes. A number of frameworks have been developed to group such pathways of introduction into discrete categories in order to improve ...
    • Invasion debt – quantifying future biological invasions 

      Rouget, M.; Robertson, M.P.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Hui, C.; Essl, F.; Renteria, J.L.; Richardson, D.M. (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 ...
    • Native range size and growth form in Cactaceae predict invasiveness and impact 

      Novoa, A.; Kumschick, S.; Richardson, D.M.; Rouget, M.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Pensoft, 2016)
      Many recent studies in invasion science have identified species traits that determine either invasiveness or impact. Such analyses underpin risk assessments and attempts to prioritise management actions. However, the ...
