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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
