Human usage in the native range may determine future genetic structure of an invasion : insights from Acacia pycnantha
(BioMed Central, 2013-10)
Background: The influence of introduction history and post-introduction dynamics on genetic diversity and structure has been a major research focus in invasion biology. However, genetic diversity and structure in the invasive ...
Increasing functional modularity with residence time in the co-distribution of native and introduced vascular plants
(Nature Publishing Group, 2013-09)
Species gain membership of regional assemblages by passing through multiple ecological and environmental filters. To capture the potential trajectory of structural changes in regional meta-communities driven by biological ...
Disentangling the dynamics of invasive fireweed (Senecio madagascariensis Poir. species complex) in the Hawaiian Islands
(Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2010-07)
Studies investigating the genetic variation of invasive species render opportunities to better understand the dynamics of biological invasions from an ecological and evolutionary perspective. In this study, we investigate ...
Genetic analysis shows low levels of hybridization between African wildcats (Felis silvestris lybica) and domestic cats (F. s. catus) in South Africa
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015)
Hybridization between domestic and wild animals is a major concern for biodiversity conservation, and as habitats become increasingly fragmented, conserving biodiversity at all levels, including genetic, becomes increasingly ...
The global distribution of bamboos : assessing correlates of introduction and invasion
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2016-12-23)
There is a long history of species being moved around the world by humans. These introduced species can provide substantial benefits, but they can also have undesirable consequences. We explore the importance of human ...
The structure of legume–rhizobium interaction networks and their response to tree invasions
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2016-06-02)
Establishing mutualistic interactions in novel environments is important for the successful establishment of some non-native plant species. These associations may, in turn, impact native species interaction networks as ...
The ecology, biogeography, history and future of two globally important weeds : Cardiospermum halicacabum Linn. and C. grandiflorum Sw.
Members of the balloon vine genus, Cardiospermum, have been extensively moved around the globe as medicinal and horticultural species, two of which are now widespread invasive species; Cardiospermum grandiflorum and ...
Evidence of repeated and independent saltational evolution in a peculiar genus of sphinx moths (Proserpinus : Sphingidae)
(Public Library of Science, 2008-12-24)
Background: Saltational evolution in which a particular lineage undergoes relatively rapid, significant, and unparalleled change as compared with its closest relatives is rarely invoked as an alternative model to the ...
