Evolutionary dynamics of tree invasions: Complementing the unified framework for biological invasions
(Oxford University Press, 2017-01)
Evolutionary processes greatly impact the outcomes of biological invasions. An extensive body of research suggests that invasive populations often undergo phenotypic and ecological divergence from their native sources. ...
Using global and regional Species Distribution Models (SDM) to infer the invasive stage of latrodectus geometricus (Araneae: Theridiidae) in the Americas
(Entomological Society of America, 2016)
© The Authors 2016. The brown widow spider, Latrodectus geometricus C. L. Koch, 1841, is a large spider of the family Theridiidae that belongs to a genus of medical interest owing to its potent neurotoxic venom, which ...
An analysis of publications on invasive macrophytes in aquatic ecosystems
(Regional Euro-asian Biological Invasions Centre-reabic, 2014-11-01)
In this study, we performed a scientometric analysis of published scientific papers on the biological invasion of macrophytes in freshwater ecosystems to assess the main trends and gaps in research concerning this group ...
Invasive plants: representativeness of research from tropical countries in the global context
(FUNDACAO BOTICARIO PROTECAO NATUREZA, 2008)
Biological invasions threaten the native biota of several countries and this threat is even greater in the tropical regions that have the greatest biodiversity. In order to evaluate the representativeness of studies on ...
Tree invasions: patterns, processes, challenges and opportunities
Tree invasions have escalated in importance in the last few decades (more species, greater area invaded, more types of impacts, increasing complexity of management challenges), and are increasingly studied from many ...
Invasive belowground mutualists of woody plants
Most plants require mutualistic associa- tions to survive, which can be an important limitation on their ability to become invasive. There are four strategies that permit plants to become invasive without being limited ...
Conflicting values: ecosystem services and invasive tree management
Tree species have been planted widely beyond their native ranges to provide or enhance ecosystem services such as timber and fibre produc- tion, erosion control, and aesthetic or amenity benefits. At the same time, ...
Integrating the study of non-native plant invasions across spatial scales
Non-native (alien, exotic) plant invasions are affecting ecological processes and threatening biodiversity worldwide. Patterns of plant invasions, and the ecological processes which generate these patterns, vary across ...
Disruption of ecosystem processes in western North America by invasive species
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2004)
Invasive aquatic plants presents in Chile: Distribution, traits of life and invasive potential
(EDICIONES UNIV. CONCEPCION, 2017)
