Boom-bust dynamics in biological invasions: towards an improved application of the concept
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd/CNRS, 2017)
Boom-bust dynamics – the rise of a population to outbreak levels, followed by a dramatic decline – have been associated with biological invasions and offered as a reason not to manage troublesome invaders. However, boom-bust ...
Parasites as drivers and passengers of human-mediated biological invasions
We provide an overview of the current state of knowledge of parasites in biological invasions by alien species. Parasites have frequently been invoked as drivers of invasions, but have received less attention as invasion ...
Protected areas offer refuge from invasive species spreading under climate change
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
Protected areas (PAs) are intended to provide native biodiversity and habitats with a refuge against the impacts of global change, particularly acting as natural filters against biological invasions. In practice, however, ...
Beta diversity of urban floras among European and non-European cities.
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2014)
Aim Cities represent an ideal study system for assessing how intensive land-use change and biotic interchange have altered beta diversity at broad geographic extents. Here we test the hypothesis that floras in cities located ...
The role of fruit heteromorphism in the naturalization of Asteraceae
Background and Aims Fruit heteromorphism is considered to be a bet-hedging strategy to cope with spatially or temporally heterogeneous environments. The different behaviours of the fruit morphs of the same species might ...
The use of barriers to limit the spread of aquatic invasive animal species: a global review
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are one of the principal threats to freshwater biodiversity. Exclusion barriers are increasingly being used as a management strategy to control the spread of AIS. However, exclusion barriers ...
