Distribution models of invasive plants over-estimate potential impact

  title={Distribution models of invasive plants over-estimate potential impact},
  author={Bethany A. Bradley},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
Habitat suitability models developed for non-native, invasive species often implicitly assume that projected invasion risk equates to risk of impact. I aim to test to what extent this assumption is true by comparing commonly-used invasive plant distribution datasets to abundance records. I compared herbarium occurrence records (downloaded from an online database) and regional occurrence records (compiled from individual states) to abundance estimates collected from over 300 invasive plant… CONTINUE READING
