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 ...
Intergrating invasive species policies across ornamental horticulture supply chains to prevent plant invasions.
(British Ecological Society, 2017)
1. Ornamental horticulture is the primary pathway for invasive alien plant introductions. We critically appraise published evidence on the effectiveness of four policy instruments that tackle invasions along the horticulture ...
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, ...
Tackling invasive alien species in Europe: the top 20 issues
Globally, Invasive Alien Species (IAS) are considered to be one of the major threats to native biodiversity, with the World Conservation Union (IUCN) citing their impacts as ‘immense, insidious, and usually irreversible’. ...
Greater focus needed on alien plant impacts in protected areas.
(Wiley Periodicals, Inc, 2014)
Alien plants pose significant threats to protected areas worldwide yet many studies only describe the degree to which these areas have become invaded. Research must move toward a better understanding of alien plant impacts ...
Europe's other debt crisis caused by the long legacy of future extinctions
(National Academy of Sciences, 2013-01-22)
Rapid economic development in the past century has translated into severe pressures on species survival as a result of increasing land-use change, environmental pollution, and the spread of invasive alien species. However, ...
Invasion Science: looking forward rather than revisiting old ground - a reply to Zenni et al.
(Cell Press Reviews, 2017)
Invasion Science: A horizon scan of emerging challenges and oppurtunities
(Elsevier Ltd., 2017)
We identified emerging scientific, technological, and sociopolitical issues likely to affect how biological invasions are studied and managed over the next two decades. Issues were ranked according to their probability ...
Weed risk assessments are an effective component of invasion risk management
(Wees Science Society of America(WSSA), 2016)
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 ...
