Temperate trees and shrubs as global invaders: the relationship between invasiveness and native distribution depends on biological traits

Abstract

Many woody plants have been recently recognized as major invasive species with serious impacts on species diversity and functioning of invaded ecosystems. We evaluated the global invasion success of temperate trees and shrubs with native ranges in central Europe and explored the role of their native distribution and that of biological traits in determining… (More)
