Aim We examine how two categories of non-native species (archaeophyte and neophyte, introduced before and after  1500, respectively) have had different impacts on β diversity across European urban floras. Our goal is to use the unique biological perspective provided by urban areas, and the contrasting historical and geographical perspectives provided by archaeophytes and neophytes, to infer how non-native species will impact upon β diversity in the future. Location Twenty-two urban areas… CONTINUE READING
