• An assessment of the information content of South African alien species databases 

      Faulkner, Katelyn T.; Spear, Dian; Robertson, Mark P.; Rouget, Mathieu; Wilson, John R. U. (http://www.aosis.co.za/, 2015-05)
      National alien species databases indicate the state of a country’s biodiversity and provide useful data for research on invasion biology and the management of invasions. In South Africa there are several different published ...
    • Competition and feeding ecology in two sympatric Xenopus species (Anura: Pipidae) 

      Vogt, Solveig; De Villiers, F. Andre; Ihlow, Flora; Rodder, Dennis; Measey, John (PeerJ, 2017)
      The widespread African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) occurs in sympatry with the IUCN Endangered Cape platanna (Xenopus gilli) throughout its entire range in the south-western Cape, South Africa. In order to investigate ...
    • How repeatable is the Environmental Impact Classification of Alien Taxa (EICAT)? Comparing independent global impact assessments of amphibians 

      Kumschick, Sabrina; Measey, G. John; Vimercati, Giovanni; De Villiers, F. Andre; Mokhatla, Mohlamatsane M.; Davies, Sarah J.; Thorp, Corey J.; Rebelo, Alexander D.; Blackburn, Tim M.; Kraus, Fred (Wiley Open Access, 2017)
      The magnitude of impacts some alien species cause to native environments makes them targets for regulation and management. However, which species to target is not always clear, and comparisons of a wide variety of impacts ...
    • Impact assessment with different scoring tools : how well do alien amphibian assessments match? 

      Kumschick, Sabrina; Vimercati, Giovanni; De Villiers, F. Andre; Mokhatla, Mohlamatsane M.; Davies, Sarah J.; Thorp, Corey J.; Rebelo, Alexander D.; Measey, G. John (Pensoft Publishers, 2017-01-27)
      Classification of alien species’ impacts can aid policy making through evidence based listing and management recommendations. We highlight differences and a number of potential difficulties with two scoring tools, the ...
    • No saturation in the accumulation of alien species worldwide 

      Seebens, Hanno; Blackburn, T. M.; Dyer, E. E.; Genovesi, P.; Hulme, P. E.; Jeschke, J. M.; Pagad, S.; Pysek, P.; Winter, M.; Arianoutsou, M.; Bacher, S.; Blasius, B.; Brundu, G.; Capinha, G.; Celesti-Grapow, L.; Dawson, W.; Dullinger, S.; Fuentes, N.; Jager, H.; Kartesz, J.; Kenis, M.; Kreft, H.; Kuhn, I; Lenzner, B.; Liebhold, A.; Mosena, A.; Moser, D.; Nishino, M.; Pearman, D.; Pergl, J.; Rabitsch, W.; Rojas-Sandoval, J.; Roques, A.; Rorke, S.; Rossinelli, S.; Roy, H. E.; Scalera, R.; Schindler, S.; Stajerova, K.; Tokarska-Guzik, B.; Van Kleunen, M.; Walker, K.; Weigelt, P.; Yamanaka, T.; Essl, F. (Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2017)
      Although research on human-mediated exchanges of species has substantially intensified during the last centuries, we know surprisingly little about temporal dynamics of alien species accumulations across regions and taxa. ...
    • A taxonomically and geographically constrained information base limits non-native reptile and amphibian risk assessment : a systematic review 

      Van Wilgen, Nicola J.; Gillespie, Micaela S.; Richardson, David M.; Measey, John (PeerJ, 2018-11-08)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: For many taxa, new records of non-native introductions globally occur at a near exponential rate. We undertook a systematic review of peer-reviewed publications on non-native herpetofauna, to assess the ...
    • A unified classification of alien species based on the magnitude of their environmental impacts 

      Blackburn, Tim M.; Essl, Franz; Evans, Thomas; Hulme, Philip E.; Jeschke, Jonathan M.; Kuhn, Ingolf; Kumschick, Sabrina; Markova, Zuzana; Mrugala, Agata; Nentwig, Wolfgang; Pergl, Jan; Pysek, Petr; Rabitsch, Wolfgang; Ricciardi, Anthony; Richardson, David M.; Sendek, Agnieszka; Vila, Montserrat; Wilson, John R. U.; Winter, Marten; Genovesi, Piero; Bacher, Sven (PLoS, 2014)
      Species moved by human activities beyond the limits of their native geographic ranges into areas in which they do not naturally occur (termed aliens) can cause a broad range of significant changes to recipient ecosystems; ...
