Here be dragons: A tool for quantifying novelty due to covariate range and correlation change when projecting species distribution models
Aim Correlative species distribution models (SDMs) often involve some degree of projection into novel covariate space (i.e. extrapolation), because calibration data may not encompass the entireExpand

Invasion trajectory of alien trees: the role of introduction pathway and planting history.
Global change is driving a massive rearrangement of the world's biota. Trajectories of distributional shifts are shaped by species traits, the recipient environment and driving forces with many ofExpand

Contain or eradicate? Optimizing the management goal for Australian acacia invasions in the face of uncertainty
Aim  To identify whether eradication or containment is expected to be the most cost-effective management goal for an isolated invasive population when knowledge about the current extent is uncertain.Expand

Chemical and physical plant defence across multiple ontogenetic stages in a tropical rain forest understorey tree
Summary 1. Variation over plant ontogeny can play an important role in shaping trade-offs between investing resources in growth, reproduction and defence. Most previous ontogenetic studies on plantExpand

Opinion: Is CRISPR-based gene drive a biocontrol silver bullet or global conservation threat?
Scientists have recognized the potential for applying gene drive technologies to the control of invasive species for several years (1, 2), yet debate about the application of gene drive has beenExpand

Predicting the subspecific identity of invasive species using distribution models: Acacia saligna as an example
Aim  To explore whether the subspecific genetic entities of Acacia saligna occupy different bioclimatic niches in their native and introduced ranges and whether these niches are predictable usingExpand

Comment on “Climatic Niche Shifts Are Rare Among Terrestrial Plant Invaders”
Petitpierre et al. (Reports, 16 March 2012, p. 1344) conclude that niche shifts are rare for terrestrial plant invaders and that this justifies the use of correlative modeling to project speciesExpand
