  • As nonindigenous species continue to displace native species and disrupt ecosystems, understanding the degree to which native species richness affects the vulner- ability of communities to nonindigenous species invasions has grown in importance. Native and exotic species diversity are often positively correlated in large-scale observational studies, but negatively correlated in small-scale experimental studies. This discrepancy suggests that the scale of invasion studies may be an important… CONTINUE READING
