Grasping at the routes of biological invasions: a framework for integrating pathways into policy
Summary 1. Pathways describe the processes that result in the introduction of alien species from one location to another. A framework is proposed to facilitate the comparative analysis of invasionExpand
Alien species in a warmer world: risks and opportunities.
Climate change and biological invasions are key processes affecting global biodiversity, yet their effects have usually been considered separately. Here, we emphasise that global warming has enabledExpand
Ecological effects of invasive alien insects
A literature survey identified 403 primary research publications that investigated the ecological effects of invasive alien insects and/or the mechanisms underlying these effects. The majority ofExpand
Ecological effects and management of invasive alien Vespidae
Insect species associated with human goods continue to be accidentally introduced into new locations. A small proportion of these introduced species become invasive, causing a range of impacts in theExpand
No saturation in the accumulation of alien species worldwide
Although research on human-mediated exchanges of species has substantially intensified during the last centuries, we know surprisingly little about temporal dynamics of alien species accumulationsExpand
Harmonia axyridis in Europe: spread and distribution of a non-native coccinellid
Native to Asia, Harmonia axyridis (Pallas) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is considered an invasive alien ladybird in Europe and North America, where it was widely introduced as a biological controlExpand
Invasive alien predator causes rapid declines of native European ladybirds
Aim Invasive alien species (IAS) are recognized as major drivers of biodiversity loss, but few causal relationships between IAS and species declines have been documented. In this study, we compareExpand
Occurrence of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis in Russia and its potential impact on European forestry.
The emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, is a beetle native to East Asia where it is considered a minor pest, preferentially attacking weakened or dying ash trees. It was first discovered in NorthExpand
Research on Parasitoids and Predators of Scolytidae – A Review
Scolytidae are major forest pests in Europe. For example, Ips typographus (L.) is considered the main pest problem in forestry in many central and northern European countries. Consequently, there isExpand
