The life history of Salicaceae living in the active zone of floodplains
1. Exposed riverine sediments are difficult substrata for seedling establishment because of extremes in the microclimate, poor soil conditions and frequent habitat turnover. Various species ofExpand
Ain't no mountain high enough: plant invasions reaching new elevations
Most studies of invasive species have been in highly modified, lowland environments, with comparatively little attention directed to less disturbed, high-elevation environments. However, increasingExpand
Altitudinal distribution of alien plant species in the Swiss Alps
Abstract In summer 2003 we recorded the presence and abundance of alien plant species at 232 sites (107 railway stations and 125 road sites) along mountain passes in the Swiss Alps. The altitudinalExpand

Riparian vegetation and island formation along the gravel‐bed Fiume Tagliamento, Italy
After more than 300 years of river management, scientific knowledge of European river systems has evolved with limited empirical knowledge of truly natural systems. In particular, little is known ofExpand
Recognition that causal processes change during plant invasion helps explain conflicts in evidence.
Despite intensive research, we still have no general understanding of why plant invasions occur. Many different mechanisms of plant invasions have been proposed, but studies designed to investigateExpand
Assembly of nonnative floras along elevational gradients explained by directional ecological filtering
Nonnative species richness typically declines along environmental gradients such as elevation. It is usually assumed that this is because few invaders possess the necessary adaptations to succeedExpand
Introduced plants of the invasive Solidago gigantea (Asteraceae) are larger and grow denser than conspecifics in the native range
Introduced plant species that became successful invaders appear often more vigorous and taller than their conspecifics in the native range. Reasons postulated to explain this better performance inExpand
Food system resilience: Defining the concept
Abstract In a world of growing complexity and uncertainty, the security of food supplies is threatened by many factors. These include multiple processes of global change (e.g. climate change, rapidExpand
