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, ...
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 ...
A unified classification on alien species based on the magnitude of their environmental impacts
(Public Library of Science, 2014-05-06)
Species moved by human activities beyond the limits of their native geographic ranges into areas in which they do not naturally occur (termed aliens) can cause a broad range of significant changes to recipient ecosystems; ...
Challenging the view that invasive non-native plants are not a significant threat to the floristic diversity of Great Britian
(National Academy of Science, 2015-06-09)
Conservation scientists and practitioners have long recognized that not all non-native species pose a threat to biodiversity, yet some ecologists still fail to grasp this message (1). The conclusions drawn by Thomas and ...
