Natives adapting to invasive species: ecology, genes, and the sustainability of conservation

  title={Natives adapting to invasive species: ecology, genes, and the sustainability of conservation},
  author={Scott P. Carroll},
  journal={Ecological Research},
Contemporary anthropogenic evolution is common. Biological invasions are an especially dynamic form of novel selection. This paper considers how native species evolve in response to biological invasions and the potential consequences of such evolution. Among numerous recent cases, the most widely reported instances are of phytophagous insects shifting onto introduced host plants. For example, our studies show that in North America and Australia, soapberry bugs evolved substantially after… CONTINUE READING
