• Are invasive populations characterized by a broader diet than native populations? 

      Courant, Julien; Vogt, Solveig; Marques, Raquel; Measey, John; Secondi, Jean; Rebelo, Rui; De Villiers, Andre; Ihlow, Flora; De Busschere, Charlotte; Backeljau, Thierry; Rodder, Dennis; Herrel, Anthony (PeerJ, 2017)
      Background. Invasive species are among the most significant threats to biodiversity. The diet of invasive animal populations is a crucial factor that must be considered in the context of biological invasions. A broad ...
    • Global realized niche divergence in the African clawed frog Xenopus laevis 

      Rodder, Dennis; Ihlow, Flora; Courant, Julien; Secondi, Jean; Herrel, Anthony; Rebelo, Rui; Measey, G. J.; Lillo, Francesco; De Villiers, F. A.; De Busschere, Charlotte; Backeljau, Thierry (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
      Although of crucial importance for invasion biology and impact assessments of climate change, it remains widely unknown how species cope with and adapt to environmental conditions beyond their currently realized climatic ...
    • Impacts of climate change on the global invasion potential of the African clawed frog xenopus laevis 

      Ihlow, Flora; Courant, Julien; Secondi, Jean; Herrel, Anthony; Rebelo, Rui; Measey, G. John; Lillo, Francesco; De Villiers, F. Andre; Vogt, Solveig; De Busschere, Charlotte; Backeljau, Thierry; Rodder, Dennis (Public Library of Science, 2016-06-01)
      By altering or eliminating delicate ecological relationships, non-indigenous species are considered a major threat to biodiversity, as well as a driver of environmental change. Global climate change affects ecosystems and ...
    • Unequal contribution of native South African phylogeographic lineages to the invasion of the African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis, in Europe 

      De Busschere, Charlotte; Courant, Julien; Herrel, Anthony; Rebelo, Rui; Rodder, Dennis; Measey, G. John; Backeljau, Thierry (PeerJ, 2016)
      Due to both deliberate and accidental introductions, invasive African Clawed Frog (Xenopus laevis) populations have become established worldwide. In this study, we investigate the geographic origins of invasive X. laevis ...
