CliMond: global high‐resolution historical and future scenario climate surfaces for bioclimatic modelling
1. Gridded climatologies have become an indispensable component of bioclimatic modelling, with a range of applications spanning conservation and pest management. Such globally conformal data sets of…

By synthesising knowledge of how the environment affects seeds to determine when and how they leave the soil seed bank into a resistance–exposure model, this work provides a new framework for developing experimental and modelling approaches to predict how long seeds will persist in a range of environments.
European oak declines and global warming: a theoretical assessment with special reference to the activity of Phytophthora cinnamomi
Under conditions of global warming the survival and degree of root disease caused by this fungus seems likely to be enhanced, while the host range of the organism might also be increased, and with a mean increase in temperatures the fungus might considerably increase its disease activity in its existing locations, and to some extent spread northwards and eastwards.
Current and projected global distribution of Phytophthora cinnamomi, one of the world's worst plant pathogens
For the first time, a comprehensive global map of the current P. cinnamomi distribution is provided, an improved climex model of the distribution, and a projection to 2080 of the Distribution with predicted climate change are provided.
Predicting the Australian Weed Status of Southern African Plants
A method of predicting weed status was developed for southern African plants naturalized in Australia, based upon information on extra-Australian weed status, distribution and taxonomy, finding no variables were suitable predictors of non-agricultural (environmental) weeds.
Indirect interactions, community modules and biological control: a theoretical perspective.
Modelling horses for novel climate courses: insights from projecting potential distributions of native and alien Australian acacias with correlative and mechanistic models
Aim Investigate the relative abilities of different bioclimatic models and data sets to project species ranges in novel environments utilizing the natural experiment in biogeography provided by…
Making decisions to conserve species under climate change
Severe impacts on biodiversity are predicted to arise from climate change. These impacts may not be adequately addressed by conventional approaches to conservation. As a result, additional management…
Phytophthora bilorbang sp. nov., a new species associated with the decline of Rubus anglocandicans (European blackberry) in Western Australia
A new homothallic Phytophthora species, isolated from rhizosphere soil and roots of declining or dead Rubus anglocandicans (European blackberry) in south-west Western Australia, is described as…
Potential risk of accidental introduction of Asian gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) to Australasia: effects of climatic conditions and suitability of native plants
There is a high probability of accidental introductions of the Asian strain of the gypsy moth to Australasia from a study of the insect's host range and potential distribution.
