      The successful invasiveness of Parthenium hysterophorus (parthenium) is attributed to its competitive ability and high allelopathic potential. The compound, parthenin, has been implicated as a major allelochemical in ...
    • Invasion dynamics of Lantana camara L. (sensu lato) in South Africa. 

      Vardien, W.; Richardson, D.M.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Thompson, G.; Wilson, J.R.; Le Roux, J.C. (2012)
      Lantana camara L. (sensu lato) has a wide range of impacts throughout its global invasive range. Here we review the mechanisms driving its invasion dynamics in South Africa at national (biome, habitat) and regional (within ...
    • Invasion syndromes: a systematic approach for predicting biological invasions and facilitating effective management 

      Novoa, A.; Richardson, D.M.; Pyšek, P.; Meyerson, L.A.; Bacher, S.; Canavan, S.; Catford, J.A.; Čuda, J.; Essl, F.; Foxcroft, L.C.; Genovesi, P.; Hirsch, H.; Hui, C.; Jackson, M.C.; Kueffer, C.; Le Roux, J.J.; Measey, J.; Mohanty, N.P.; Moodley, D.; Müller-Schärer, H.; Packer, J.G.; Pergl, J.; Robinson, T.B.; Saul, W.C.; Shackleton, R.T.; Visser, V.; Weyl, O.L.F.; Yannelli, F.A.; Wilson, J.R.U.
