      Ndlovu, J.; Richardson, D.M.; Wilson, J.R.U.; O'Leary, M.; Le Roux, J.J. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
      † Background and Aims Understanding the introduction history of invasive plant species is important for their management and identifying effective host-specific biological control agents. However, uncertain taxonomy, intra- ...
    • Hitting the right target: taxonomic challenges for, and of, plant invasions 

      Pysek, P.; Hulme, P.E.; Meyerson, L.A.; Smith, G.F.; Boatwright, J.S.; Crouch, N.R.; Figueiredo, E.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Jarosik, V.; Richardson, D.M.; Suda, J.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Oxford University Press, 2013-09-19)

    • Studying earthworms (Annelida: Oligochaeta) in South Africa 

      Nxele, T.C.; Lamani, S.; Measey, G.J.; Armstrong, A.J.; Plisko, J.D.; Willos-Munro, S.; Janion-Scheepers, C.; Wilson, J.R.U. (Council of the KwaZulu-Natal Museum, 2015)
      Earthworms are an important component of southern African invertebrate diversity, due both to their influential roles in soil ecosystems, and the relatively large number of species. As of 2010, there were 282 indigenous ...
    • A workflow for standardising and integrating alien species distribution data 

      Seebens, H.; Clarke, D.A.; Groom, Q.; Wilson, J.R.U.; García-Berthou, E.; Kühn, I.; Roigé, M.; Pagad, S.; Essl, F.; Vicente, J.; Winter, M.; McGeoch, M. (2020)
