A global assessment of a large monocot family highlights the need for group-specific analyses of invasiveness
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2016)
Significant progress has been made in understanding biological invasions recently, and one of the key findings is that the determinants of naturalization and invasion success vary from group to group. Here, we explore this ...
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 ...
Biological invasions and natural colonisations are different – the need for invasion science
In a recent Discussion Paper, Hoffmann and Courchamp (2016) posed the question: are biological invasions and natural colonisations that different? This apparently simple question resonates at the core of the biological ...
Confronting the wicked problem of managing biological invasions
The Anthropocene Epoch is characterized by novel and increasingly complex dependencies between the environment and human civilization, with many challenges of biodiversity management emerging as wicked problems. Problems ...
Native range size and growth form in Cactaceae predict invasiveness and impact
Many recent studies in invasion science have identified species traits that determine either invasiveness or impact. Such analyses underpin risk assessments and attempts to prioritise management actions. However, the factors ...
