Successful establishment of a plant or animal into new territories generally involves very few, or even just one, of the various genotypes present in its area of origin. Biological invasions can hence also result in decreasing considerably the genetic diversity of wild populations, a phenomenon whose consequences have been extensively discussed elsewhere. Based on the examination of a series of well documented examples of classical biological control of weeds, Burdon & Marshall (1981) have… CONTINUE READING
