Impacts of biological invasions: what's what and the way forward.
Global Biodiversity: Indicators of Recent Declines
Most indicators of the state of biodiversity showed declines, with no significant recent reductions in rate, whereas indicators of pressures on biodiversity showed increases, indicating that the Convention on Biological Diversity’s 2010 targets have not been met.

To be successful, large-scale rodent campaigns should be integrated with programs to improve the livelihoods of residents, island biosecurity, and reinvasion response programs, and applied research can further aid in minimizing impacts.
How well do we understand the impacts of alien species on ecosystem services? A pan-European, cross-taxa assessment
Recent comprehensive data provided through the DAISIE project (www.europe-aliens.org) have facilitated the development of the first pan-European assessment of the impacts of alien plants,…
A Unified Classification of Alien Species Based on the Magnitude of their Environmental Impacts
We present a method for categorising and comparing alien or invasive species in terms of how damaging they are to the environment, that can be applied across all taxa, scales, and impact metrics.

The strong influence of economic and demographic variables on the levels of invasion by alien species demonstrates that future solutions to the problem of biological invasions at a national scale lie in mitigating the negative environmental consequences of human activities that generate wealth and by promoting more sustainable population growth.
Will climate change promote future invasions?

Using ensemble forecasts from species distribution models to project future suitable areas of the 100 of the world's worst invasive species, it is shown that both climate and land use changes will likely cause drastic species range shifts.
No saturation in the accumulation of alien species worldwide
It is shown that the annual rate of first records worldwide has increased during the last 200 years, with 37% of all first records reported most recently (1970–2014), highlighting that past efforts to mitigate invasions have not been effective enough to keep up with increasing globalization.
