Short-term soil nutrient and plant community responses to the eradication of a nitrogen fixing tree, Lupinus arboreus
The application of herbicide resulted in the slow decay of the mature plant and as such delayed an increase in exotic species cover and inhibited L. arboreus germination, a legacy effect which will hinder restoration of the original structure and function in the long term.
Impact of Plants Introduced by People During a Time of Rapid Environmental Change
This article argues for long-term, integrated programmes of observation and experimentation in the field and laboratory into the risks that introduced plants pose for native species and ecosystems.

Spatial associations between invasive tree lupin and populations of two katipo spiders at Kaitorete Spit, New Zealand.
Spatial associations between the invasive tree lupin, the New Zealand endemic widow spider Latrodectus katipo (katipo), and the introduced South African spider Steatoda capensis were examined within the nationally significant Kaitorete Spit dune system in Canterbury, New Zealand.
