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 ...
Temporal and interspecific variation in rates of spread for insect species invading Europe during the last 200 years
Globalization is triggering an increase in the establishment of alien insects in Europe, with several species having substantial ecological and economic impacts. We investigated long-term changes in rates of species spread ...
Chromolaena odorata (Siam Weed) in eastern Africa: distribution and socio-ecological impacts
Invasive alien plant species such as Chromolaena odorata have negative impacts on biodiversity, ecosystem services and human well-being. Ecological impacts of this shrub are relatively well understood, but its impacts on ...
Eucalyptus invasions in riparian forests: Effects on native vegetation community diversity, stand structure and composition.
(Elsevier B.V., 2013)
Effects of alien plant invaders on native ecosystems are widely acknowledged, although the evidence is sometimes speculative, especially in riparian zones. We examined the changes in floristic diversity, stand structure ...
The progress of interdisciplinarity in invasion science
(Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, 2017)
Interdisciplinarity is needed to gain knowledge of the ecology of invasive species and invaded ecosystems, and of the human dimensions of biological invasions. We combine a quantitative literature review with a qualitative ...
Modelling the effect of two biocontrol agents on the invasive alien tree Acacia cyclops - Flowering, seed production and agent survival
Invasive alien plants play an important role in our changing world and have a considerable negative impact on ecosystems in many parts of the world. One effective control strategy involves the use of biocontrol agents which ...
