Inferences about introduction histories of invasive species remain challenging because of the stochastic demographic processes involved. Approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) can help to overcome these problems, but such method requires a prior understanding of population structure over the study area, necessitating the use of alternative methods and an intense sampling design. In this study, we made inferences about the worldwide invasion history of the ladybird Harmonia axyridis by various… Expand
Four times out of Europe: Serial invasions of the winter moth, Operophtera brumata, to North America
TLDR
It is estimated that winter moth was introduced to North America on at least four occasions, with the Nova Scotian and British Columbian populations probably being introduced from France and Sweden, respectively; the Oregonian population probably being introducing from either the British Isles or northern Fennoscandia; and the population in the northeastern United States probably being introduction from somewhere in Central Europe.

Inference of the worldwide invasion routes of the pinewood nematode Bursaphelenchus xylophilus using approximate Bayesian computation analysis
TLDR
The ABC method helped clarify the worldwide history of the pinewood nematode invasion, even though the results still need to be considered with some caution because the features of the PWN and the genetic markers used probably push the ABC method to its very limits. Expand
Deciphering the Routes of invasion of Drosophila suzukii by Means of ABC Random Forest
TLDR
It is found that Japan emerges as the most probable source of the earliest recorded invasion into Hawaii, and a new, more efficient, ABC method, ABC random forest (ABC-RF) is used, which out-performs ABC-LDA when using a comparable and more manageable number of simulated datasets. Expand
Reconstructing the invasion history of Heracleum persicum (Apiaceae) into Europe
TLDR
Finn is found to be a more likely source for Norwegian populations, a scenario supported by higher estimated histor‐ical migration from Finland to Norway, and genetic diversity per se is not a primary determinant of invasiveness in H. persicum. Expand
Multiple introductions and admixture at the origin of the continental spread of the fungal banana pathogen Mycosphaerella fijiensis in Central America: a statistical test using approximate bayesian computation
TLDR
Parameter inferences suggest equilibrated contributions of Oceania and South-East Asia to the American invasion and are compatible with the assumption that the invasion started from fungal strains accidentally imported on infected banana plants brought back into Honduras from diverse origins. Expand
Deciphering the worldwide invasion of the Asian long‐horned beetle: A recurrent invasion process from the native area together with a bridgehead effect
TLDR
The findings indicate that invasive species might be repeatedly introduced from their native range, and they emphasize the importance of multiple, human‐mediated introductions in successful invasions. Expand
A layover in Europe: Reconstructing the invasion route of asexual lineages of a New Zealand snail to North America
TLDR
These analyses suggest that just a small handful of clonal lineages of P. antipodarum were responsible for invasion across continents, providing critical information for prevention of additional invasions and control of existing invasive populations and of broader relevance towards understanding the establishment and evolution of asexual populations. Expand
The rapid spread of Leptoglossus occidentalis in Europe: a bridgehead invasion
TLDR
The results show that at least two independent introductions of L. occidentalis have occurred in Europe, and showed a stronger genetic similarity of European invasive populations with the eastern North American populations than with those of the native range, suggesting that invasive North American population acted as a bridgehead for European invasion. Expand
Multiple introductions, admixture and bridgehead invasion characterize the introduction history of Ambrosia artemisiifolia in Europe and Australia
TLDR
The historical admixture zone within native North America originated before global invasion of this weed and could act as a potential source of introduced populations, providing evidence supporting the hypothesis that the invasive populations established through multiple introductions from the native range into Europe and subsequent bridgehead invasion into Australia. Expand
Rapid genetic structuring of populations of the invasive fall webworm in relation to spatial expansion and control campaigns
TLDR
The combination of genetic data and historical records of the expansion suggests that geographical barriers and control campaigns have affected the formation and persistence of the two genetic groups, suggesting ways in which genetic differentiation can develop rapidly in an invasive species after its introduction.

Retracing the routes of introduction of invasive species: the case of the Sirex noctilio woodwasp
TLDR
The value of combining clustering and ABC methods in a comprehensive framework to dissect the complex patterns of spread of global invaders is illustrated, with most of the populations being admixtures resulting from independent introductions from Europe and subsequent spread among the invaded areas.

Bridgehead Effect in the Worldwide Invasion of the Biocontrol Harlequin Ladybird
TLDR
It is shown that the recent burst of worldwide invasions of HA followed a bridgehead scenario, in which an invasive population in eastern North America acted as the source of the colonists that invaded the European, South American and African continents, with some admixture with a biocontrol strain in Europe.

Invasion genetics of the introduced black rat (Rattus rattus) in Senegal, West Africa
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic bottlenecks and admixture have played a major role in shaping the genetics of invasive black rats and these two processes may generate genetic novelty and favour rapid evolution along the invasion pathways. Expand
Inferring the origin of populations introduced from a genetically structured native range by approximate Bayesian computation: case study of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
The genetic structure of the invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis in its native area was characterized using various population genetic statistics and methods and found that native area of H. axyrides most probably consisted of two geographically distinct genetic clusters located in eastern and western Asia.

Reconstructing routes of invasion using genetic data: why, how and so what?
TLDR
Some of the fundamental aspects of routes of invasion are summarized, why the reconstruction of these routes is useful for addressing both practical and theoretical questions, and comment on the various reconstruction methods available are commented on. Expand
Inferring introduction routes of invasive species using approximate Bayesian computation on microsatellite data
TLDR
This work considers the crucial case of a single source population from which two invasive populations originated either serially from a single introduction event or from two independent introduction events, and evaluates the use of an approximate Bayesian computation (ABC) method for estimating the probabilities of introduction routes of invasive populations based on microsatellite data.

Investigating the genetic load of an emblematic invasive species: the case of the invasive harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis
TLDR
It was found that inter-populations crosses had no major impact on the lifetime performance of the offspring produced by individuals from either native or invasive populations, and significant outbreeding depression was observed only for crosses between native populations for generation time.

This study illustrates that ABC methods can provide insights into, and distinguish among, complex invasion scenarios, and is critical not only in understanding the biology of invasions, but also in refining management strategies for invasive species. Expand
Inferences on population history of a seed chalcid wasp: invasion success despite a severe founder effect from an unexpected source population
TLDR
This study characterized the genetic structure of Megastigmus schimitscheki, an invasive seed‐feeding insect species originating from the Near East, and elucidated its invasion route in South‐eastern France in the mid 1990s, and unambiguously showed that the French invasive populations originated from Cyprus.
