Our investigation found that non-native plants were more susceptible to native generalist herbivores than were native plants. Ricciardi and Ward's finding that non-native plants without native congeners are more susceptible to native herbivores than are non-natives with coexisting native congeners supports our hypothesis that evolutionary naïveté leaves plants at greater risk of attack by newly encountered generalist herbivores.

TLDR
Plant-herbivore interactions play an important role in invasion success of an exotic plant and in the introduced ranges, exotic plants are believed to be largely free. Expand
Contrasting effects of specialist and generalist herbivores on resistance evolution in invasive plants.
TLDR
It is concluded that enemy release from specialist Herbivores and biotic resistance from generalist herbivores have contrasting effects on resistance evolution in invasive plants. Expand
Coexistence between native and exotic species is facilitated by asymmetries in competitive ability and susceptibility to herbivores.
TLDR
It is found that natives and exotics exhibit pronounced asymmetries, as exotics are competitively superior to natives, but are more significantly impacted by herbivores, and herbivore removal mediated the outcome of competitive interactions and altered patterns of dominance across field sites. Expand
Strong feeding preference of an exotic generalist herbivore for an exotic forb: a case of invasional antagonism
TLDR
This study provides evidence for an antagonistic relationship between a non-native herbivore and aNon-native plant species in their invasive range and term this relationship “invasional antagonism”. Expand
A regional assessment of white-tailed deer effects on plant invasion
Analyses deriving insights from 23 research sites across the northeastern and east central US reveals that white-tailed deer lower native plant diversity and increase the fraction of the plantExpand
Evidence that phylogenetically novel non-indigenous plants experience less herbivory
TLDR
To the extent that herbivory has negative demographic impacts, these results suggest that exotics that are more phylogenetically isolated from native confamilials should be more invasive; conversely, native communities should beMore resistant to invasion if they harbor close familial relatives of potential invaders. Expand
No impact of a native beetle on exotic plant performance and competitive ability due to plant compensation
TLDR
The results indicate that herbivory by novel enemies may not reduce exotic plant performance due to plant compensation, and high tolerance to herbvory may not confer a competitive advantage for exotic species compared to less tolerant native competitors if the herbivore damage is below a certain threshold. Expand
Native insects and invasive plants encounters
TLDR
This study examines the consequences of herbivory and pollination on invasive plants upon encounters with native insects in the invaded regions and illustrates a sequence of possible changes that native insects and invasive plants interactions may bring about within a biotic community. Expand
Predicting novel trophic interactions in a non-native world.
TLDR
A predictive model to forecast novel interactions is developed and verified with a data set containing hundreds of observed novel plant-insect interactions, making the forecasting of novel herbivore communities feasible in order to better understand the fate and impact of introduced plants. Expand
Response of native insect communities to invasive plants.
TLDR
The impact of invasive plants on the population dynamics of resident insect species has been rarely examined, but invasive plants can influence the spatial and temporal dynamics of native insect (meta)populations and communities, ultimately leading to changes at the landscape level. Expand

Opposing Effects of Native and Exotic Herbivores on Plant Invasions
Exotic species are widely assumed to thrive because they lack natural enemies in their new ranges. However, a meta-analysis of 63 manipulative field studies including more than 100 exotic plantExpand
Biotic interactions and plant invasions.
TLDR
It is concluded that species introductions generally alter plants' interactions with enemies, mutualists and competitors, and that there is increasing evidence that these altered interactions jointly influence the success of introduced populations. Expand
Exotic taxa less related to native species are more invasive.
TLDR
Using a phylogenetic supertree of all grass species in California, it is shown that highly invasive grass species are, on average, significantly less related to native grasses than are introduced but noninvasive grasses. Expand
Distinctiveness magnifies the impact of biological invaders in aquatic ecosystems
TLDR
This work presents the first general test of the hypothesis that an invader’s impact is determined by the system’'s evolutionary experience with similar species, and compares the taxonomic distinctiveness of high- and low-impact invaders in several aquatic systems. Expand
Insect-Plant Interactions
TLDR
Methods described include direct behavioral observation; assays of host finding, oviposition, and feeding behavior of insect herbivores; post-ingestion physiological effects; measurement of food quality and sensory responses of insects to plant stimuli; chemical isolation and identification of active phytochemicals; evaluation of plant resistance to insects; and the biochemistry of allelochemic interactions.

Marine chemical ecology: what's known and what's next?
TLDR
This review concludes that relatively unstudied, ontogenetic shifts in concentrations and types of defenses occur in marine species, and patterns of larval chemical defenses appear to provide insights into the evolution of complex life cycles and of differing modes of development among marine invertebrates.
