Invasive species are distinguished by their rate of spread and this is thought to be associated with the ability to produce many offspring. However, it is possible that many studies do not succeed in highlighting a positive correlation between invasiveness and reproductive rate because they lack an allometric perspective. Information on the ladybird beetles introduced into North America and data on life-history traits of 30 species of ladybird beetles were used to search for a relationship… CONTINUE READING
