Different traits determine introduction, naturalization and invasion success in woody plants : proteaceae as a test case
A major aim of invasion ecology is to identify characteristics of successful invaders. However, most plant groups studied in detail (e.g. pines and acacias) have a high percentage of invasive taxa. Here we examine the ...
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 ...
A new national unit for invasive species detection, assessment and eradication planning
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2013)
Even with no new introductions, the number of biological invasions in South Africa will increase as introduced species naturalise and become invasive. As of 2010 South Africa had ~8750 introduced plant taxa, 660 recorded ...
Hitting the right target : taxonomic challenges for, and of, plant invasions
(Oxford University Press, 2013)
This paper explores how a lack of taxonomic expertise, and by implication a dearth of taxonomic products such as identification tools, has hindered progress in understanding and managing biological invasions. It also ...
