Understanding the factors related to invasive exotic species distributions at broad spatial scales has important theoretical and management implications, because biological invasions are detrimental to many ecosystem functions and processes. Housing development facilitates invasions by disturbing land cover, introducing nonnative landscaping plants, and(More)
A soil fertility gradient, ranging from infertile to highly fertile soils, may define whether or not a plant will establish and spread at a site. We evaluated whether or not such a fertility gradient exists for Rosa multiflora Thunb., a nonnative invasive shrub, and Kalmia latifolia L., a native problem shrub, in closed-canopy forests of the eastern U.S. We(More)

ardson's book flows logically from a focus on invasive species basic knowledge to a focus on new directions of invasion science and, briefly, to how this research might relate to management and policy development. This book contains a series of chapters that acknowledge and question Elton's place in invasion ecology as well as question the legitimacy of(More)
