Historical legacies accumulate to shape future biodiversity in an era of rapid global change
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015)
Aim Biodiversity responses to changing environmental forcing on species are often characterized by considerable time-lags (= relaxation times). Although changes to the occurrence and abundance of species likely have cascading ...
Crossing frontiers in tackling pathways of biological invasions
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Substantial progress has been made in understanding how pathways underlie and mediate biological invasions. However, key features of their role in invasions remain poorly understood, available knowledge is widely scattered, ...
Hitting the right target: taxonomic challenges for, and of, plant invasions
(Oxford University Press, 2013-09-19)
This paper explores how a lack of taxonomic expertise, and by implication a dearth of taxonomic products such as identification tools, has hindered progress in understanding and managing biological invasions. It also ...
Delayed biodiversity change: no time to waste
(Elsevier Ltd., 2015)
Delayed biodiversity responses to environmental forcing mean that rates of contemporary biodiversity changes are underestimated, yet these delays are rarely addressed in conservation policies. Here, we identify mechanisms ...
