Abstract Ecological niche modeling, a new methodology for predicting the geographic course of species' invasions, was tested based on four invasive plant species (garlic mustard, sericea lespedeza, Russian olive, and hydrilla) in North America. Models of ecological niches and geographic distributions on native distributional areas (Europe and Asia) were highly statistically significant. Projections for each species to North America—effectively predictions of invasive potential—were highly… 
Predicting Potential Occurrence and Spread of Invasive Plant Species along the North Platte River, Nebraska
TLDR
A maximum-entropy predictive habitat model was used to predict the distributions of five invasive plant species along the North Platte River in Nebraska and held promise for the development of proactive management approaches to identify and control areas of high abundance and prevent further spread of invasive plants.
Acacia dealbata invasion in Chile: Surprises from climatic niche and species distribution models
TLDR
The invasion process of A. dealbata is far from stabilizing, and management options should focus on prevention, avoiding the introduction of the species to Patagonia where the species has not spread yet.
Of Asian Forests and European Fields: Eastern U.S. Plant Invasions in a Global Floristic Context
TLDR
Traditional view of global invasions equating invasion events with the spread of European colonialism is at best a restricted framework for invasion in disturbed ecosystems and must be superseded by a biogeographic invasion theory that is explicitly habitat-specific and can explain why particular world biotas tend to dominate particular environments.
Aliens or natives: who are the ‘thugs’ in British woods?
TLDR
The results of this analysis suggest that the field-layer of British woodlands is impacted as much by native ‘thug’ species, as it is from ‘aliens’.
Predicting the current distribution and potential spread of the exotic grass Eragrostis plana Nees in South America and identifying a bioclimatic niche shift during invasion
Eragrostis plana (Poaceae) is a perennial grass introduced from South Africa to the state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil. Currently, it is considered an invasive grass in several regions of
Distribution of Five Aquatic Plants Native to South America and Invasive Elsewhere under Current Climate
Biological invasions and climate pose two of the most important challenges facing global biodiversity. Certainly, climate change may intensify the impacts of invasion by allowing invasive plants to
Niche based distribution modelling of an invasive alien plant: effects of population status, propagule pressure and invasion history
TLDR
It is concluded that even a coarse assessment of population status with records of invasive species delivers important information for predictive modelling and that proxies of propagule pressure should be included into such models at least during early to intermediate stages of the invasion history.
Russian Olive Biology, Invasion, and Ecological Impacts in Western North America
Abstract : The United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) is supporting a nationwide effort to address the impact of invasive woody
Understanding the dynamics in distribution of invasive alien plant species under predicted climate change in Western Himalaya
TLDR
This study uses Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) modelling approach to predict the potential of distribution of eleven IAPS under future climatic conditions under RCP 2.6 and RCP 8.5 in part of Kailash sacred landscape region in Western Himalaya.
