Population biology of invasive species.
■ Abstract Contributions from the field of population biology hold promise for understanding and managing invasiveness; invasive species also offer excellent opportunities to study basic processes in… Expand
Founding events in species invasions: genetic variation, adaptive evolution, and the role of multiple introductions
Invasive species are predicted to suffer from reductions in genetic diversity during founding events, reducing adaptive potential. Integrating evidence from two literature reviews and two case… Expand
Impact: Toward a Framework for Understanding the Ecological Effects of Invaders
Although ecologists commonly talk about the impacts of nonindigenous species, little formal attention has been given to defining what we mean by impact, or connecting ecological theory with… Expand
Biotic interactions and plant invasions.
Introduced plant populations lose interactions with enemies, mutualists and competitors from their native ranges, and gain interactions with new species, under new abiotic conditions. From a… Expand
Evaluating approaches to the conservation of rare and endangered plants
Schemske, D.W., B. C. Husband, M.H. Ruckelshaus, C. Goodwillie, I.M. Parker, and J.G. Bishop. 1994. Evaluating approaches to the conservation of rare and endangered plants. Ecology 75: 584-606.
THE NEW VIEW OF ANIMAL PHYLOGENY
■ Abstract Molecular tools have profoundly rearranged our understanding of metazoan phylogeny. Initially based on the nuclear small ribosomal subunit (SSU or 18S) gene, recent hypotheses have been… Expand
POLLINATOR LIMITATION OF CYTISUS SCOPARIUS (SCOTCH BROOM), AN INVASIVE EXOTIC SHRUB
- I. Parker
- 1 July 1997
Introductions of exotic species provide unique opportunities to study the demographic significance of species interactions, but as yet there is little information on how mutualistic interactions… Expand
An evolutionary approach to understanding the biology of invasions : local adaptation and general-purpose genotypes in the weed Verbascum thapsus
The role of evolution in the invasion of non-native species has important implications for conser- vation, weed science, risk assessment, and policy. In this paper we first discuss why an… Expand
Invasion dynamics of Cytisus scoparius: a matrix model approach.
- I. Parker
- 1 June 2000
It is at the level of population dynamics that an invasion either fails or succeeds. By elucidating patterns of variation in population growth rates or demographic rates, it is possible to forge a… Expand
Invading populations of an ornamental shrub show rapid life history evolution despite genetic bottlenecks.
Human-mediated species introductions offer opportunities to investigate when and how non-native species to adapt to novel environments, and whether evolution has the potential to contribute to… Expand
