The EFSA assessment of Trichilogaster acaciaelongifoliae as biocontrol agent of the invasive alien plant Acacia longifolia: a new area of activity for the EFSA Plant Health Panel?
TLDR
This paper summarizes the first assessment by the EFSA Plant Health Panel of a biological control agent (BCA) of an invasive plant and shows with this work how such advice could be provided in the European Union. Expand

Assessing the suitability and safety of a well-known bud-galling wasp, Trichilogaster acaciaelongifoliae, for biological control of Acacia longifolia in Portugal
TLDR
The implications for the use of T. acaciaelongifoliae for biological control of A. longifolia in Portugal are considered in relation to the wealth of experience and knowledge about the specificity of the wasp and the reliability of conducting host-specificity tests under confined conditions of cages.

Towards a Weed Risk Assessment for the Italian peninsula: preliminary validation of a scheme for the Central Mediterranean region in Italy.
In agro-ecosystems, where anthropogenic manipulation of the territory for agricultural production has changed the original natural ecosystem (Caporali 2000, Gliessman 2000), habitat degradation,Expand
Soil and plant changing after invasion: the case of Acacia dealbata in a Mediterranean ecosystem.
TLDR
Evaluated impacts on soil chemical properties, soil microbial communities and understory plant communities and the relationships among these compartments after the invasion of A. dealbata confirm that A.dealbata modifies several compartments of the invaded ecosystems, from soilchemical properties to soil and plant microbial communities determining strong changes in the local ecosystem processes.

TLDR
Analysis of acacia's potential as raw material source for Portuguese industry (as solid wood and pulp and paper), using knowledge acquired from previous research projects and preliminary results from an ongoing research on A. melanoxylon. Expand
An Assessment of Stakeholder Perceptions and Management of Noxious Alien Plants in Spain
TLDR
Spanish environmental managers were surveyed to analyze the extent to which they perceive plant invasions as a problem, identify the status, occurrence, and impacts of noxious alien plant species, and assess current effort and expenditure targeting alien plant management. Expand
Use of a weed risk assessment for the Mediterranean region of Central Italy to prevent loss of functionality and biodiversity in agro-ecosystems
TLDR
The effectiveness of adapting the Australian and New Zealand Weed Risk Assessment to the geographic, climatic and weed management context of Italy was assessed and the predictive accuracy of the WRA for determining invasive from non-invasive species was corroborated. Expand
Case studies of the expansion of Acacia dealbata in the valley of the river Miño (Galicia, Spain)
Aim of study: Acacia dealbata is a naturalized tree of invasive behaviour that has expanded from small plots associated with vineyards into forest ecosystems. Our main objective is to find evidenceExpand
Seed ecology of an invasive alien species, Acacia longifolia (Fabaceae), in Portuguese dune ecosystems.
TLDR
A study of Acacia longifolia, an invasive species in Portuguese dune ecosystems, provides an informative example of the extent and persistence of invasive seed banks, which help explain invasion processes and enables management planning. Expand
The genus Acacia as invader: the characteristic case of Acacia dealbata Link in Europe
TLDR
Current knowledge about the biology of the genus Acacia, and Acacia dealbata Link (silver wattle) in particular, as an invader in Europe is reviewed, focusing on biological attributes that are important for the invasiveness and possible hypotheses for the invasion success. Expand
