The role of abiotic conditions in shaping the long-term patterns of a high-elevation Argentine ant invasion
Analysis of long-term patterns of invasion can reveal the importance of abiotic factors in influencing invasion dynamics, and can help predict future patterns of spread. In the case of the invasiveExpand

The ecology, policy, and management of ants in Hawaii
Ants represent a wholly introduced component of Hawaiian ecosystems. The establishment of roughly 45 ant species over the past two centuries has wide rang- ing implications for agriculture, otherExpand

Dietary niche differentiation among three species of invasive rodents (Rattus rattus, R. exulans, Mus musculus)
The diets of sympatric rodents partially define their realized niches. Identifying items in stomachs of introduced rodents helps determine rodents’ trophic positions and species most at risk ofExpand

Climate-associated population declines reverse recovery and threaten future of an iconic high-elevation plant.
Although climate change is predicted to place mountain-top and other narrowly endemic species at severe risk of extinction, the ecological processes involved in such extinctions are still poorlyExpand

Relative roles of climatic suitability and anthropogenic influence in determining the pattern of spread in a global invader
Because invasive species threaten the integrity of natural ecosystems, a major goal in ecology is to develop predictive models to determine which species may become widespread and where they mayExpand

Integrating physiology, population dynamics and climate to make multi-scale predictions for the spread of an invasive insect: the Argentine ant at Haleakala National Park, Hawaii
Mechanistic models for predicting species' distribution patterns present particular advantages and challenges relative to models developed from statistical correlations between distribution andExpand

Invasion Processes and Causes of Success
Biological invasions represent communities in flux. Although stasis is never the rule in nature, biological interactions in communities usually occur within a framework of shared ecological andExpand

Bait preference by the Argentine ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Haleakala National Park, Hawaii
The Argentine ant, Linepithema humile (Mayr), has proven to be a threat to native arthropod species in Haleakala National Park, Maui, HI, and is also a potential threat to the park's native flora. AsExpand

Limiting Spread of a Unicolonial Invasive Insect and Characterization of Seasonal Patterns of Range Expansion
Limiting dispersal is a fundamental strategy in the control of invasive species, and in certain situations containment of incipient populations may be an important management technique. To test theExpand

Efficacy of Maxforce Bait for Control of the Argentine Ant (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Haleakala National Park, Maui, Hawaii
In an effort to develop a chemical control strategy for the invasive Argentine ant, Linepithema humile (Mayr), in Haleakala National Park, Maxforce, which is formulated with 0.9% hydramethylnon, wasExpand
