BIOTIC INVASIONS: CAUSES, EPIDEMIOLOGY, GLOBAL CONSEQUENCES, AND CONTROL
TLDR
Given their current scale, biotic invasions have taken their place alongside human-driven atmospheric and oceanic alterations as major agents of global change and left unchecked, they will influence these other forces in profound but still unpredictable ways. Expand
Forecasting Agriculturally Driven Global Environmental Change
TLDR
Should past dependences of the global environmental impacts of agriculture on human population and consumption continue, 109 hectares of natural ecosystems would be converted to agriculture by 2050, accompanied by 2.4- to 2.7-fold increases in nitrogen- and phosphorus-driven eutrophication of terrestrial, freshwater, and near-shore marine ecosystems.

Extinction by hybridization and introgression
▪ Abstract Nonindigenous species can bring about a form of extinction of native flora and fauna by hybridization and introgression either through purposeful introduction by humans or through habitatExpand
Impact: Toward a Framework for Understanding the Ecological Effects of Invaders
TLDR
This paper argues that the total impact of an invader includes three fundamental dimensions: range, abundance, and the per-capita or per-biomass effect of the invader, and recommends previous approaches to measuring impact at different organizational levels, and suggests some new approaches. Expand
The Role of Propagule Pressure in Biological Invasions
TLDR
For a few species, recent molecular evidence suggests ongoing propagule pressure aids an invasion to spread by introducing genetic variation adaptive for new areas and habitats. Expand
Climate Change and Forest Disturbances
tudies of the effects of climate change on forestshave focused on the ability of species to tolerate tem-perature and moisture changes and to disperse,but they haveignored the effects of disturbancesExpand
Impacts of biological invasions: what's what and the way forward.
TLDR
Recent progress in understanding invasion impacts and management is highlighted, and the challenges that the discipline faces in its science and interactions with society are discussed. Expand
Flagships, umbrellas, and keystones: Is single-species management passé in the landscape era?
TLDR
The recognition that some ecosystems have keystone species whose activities govern the well-being of many other species suggests an approach that may unite the best features of single-species and ecosystem management. Expand
Annual review of ecology, evolution, and systematics
TLDR
Twenty-four articles by biologists, ecologists, and other scientists represent a year's progress in the field of paleobiogeography, genetics and geographic structure, and time as an ecological resource are addressed. Expand
ECOLOGICAL RESISTANCE TO BIOLOGICAL INVASION OVERWHELMED BY PROPAGULE PRESSURE
TLDR
This is the first experimental study to demonstrate the primacy of propagule pressure as a determinant of habitat invasibility in comparison with other candidate controlling factors. Expand
