SummaryGeorgiades (1994) records 152 adventive species for Cyprus, out of which the following 16 species were regarded as spreading to natural habitats:Vinca major L.,Cistus ladanifer L.,Tagetes minuta L.,Tanacetum balsamita L.,Tanacetum parthenium (L.) Sch.Bip.,Corylus maxima Mill.,Iris albicans Lange,Acacia saligna (Labill.)

The destruction and conservation of the Egyptian Fruit bat Rousettus aegyptiacus in Cyprus: a historic review
TLDR
Cyprus recently became a member state of the European Union, which provided the opportunity to include R. aegyptiacus in the Annexes II and IV of the council directive 92/42/EEC of May 21, 1993 on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora, which will guarantee the long-range protection and survival of this species.
Consistent performance of invasive plant species within and among islands of the Mediterranean basin
TLDR
The results confirm the potential for three widespread plant invaders with clonal growth but contrasting life-history traits to significantly alter the functioning of ecosystems in the Mediterranean islands and highlight the risk to other islands not yet invaded.

A global systematic review of publications concerning the invasion biology of four tree species
TLDR
A systematic global review of Acer negundo, Fraxinus pennsylvanica, Ailanthus altissima, Robinia pseudoacacia invasions focusing on the Scopus and Web of Science databases concluded that the use only Scopus is not sufficient to obtain the complete data about the invasion biology.
Distribution of Flower Morphs, Ploidy Level and Sexual Reproduction of the Invasive Weed Oxalis pes-caprae in the Western Area of the
TLDR
The low or null sexual reproduction success of this species in the area of invasion studied seemsrelated with the high frequency of monomorphic populations, the unequal proportion of floral morphs indimorphic populations and the presence of different ploidy levels between SS and LS morphs.
DODONAEA VISCOSA JACQ. (SAPINDACEAE), NOVEDAD FLORÍSTICA PARA LA PENÍNSULA IBÉRICA
Dodonaea viscosa Jacq. (Sapindaceae), floristic new record for the Iberian peninsule. A first appointment of Dodonaea viscosa Jacq. as naturalized plant is given to the Iberian peninsule -extensively
Distribution of flower morphs, ploidy level and sexual reproduction of the invasive weed Oxalis pes-caprae in the western area of the Mediterranean region.
TLDR
The low or null sexual reproduction success of this species in the area of invasion studied seems related with the high frequency of monomorphic populations, the unequal proportion of floral morphs in dimorphic populations and the presence of different ploidy levels between SS and LS morphs.

The introduction of wild boar Sus scrofa in Cyprus: an alien species in a highly endemic area
TLDR
It is concluded that the introduction of wild boar in Cyprus should be treated as an alien species which has the potential to cause considerable, maybe irreversible, damage to the local fauna and flora, and that it should be controlled.
Rabbits and the failure of regeneration in Australian arid zone Acacia
TLDR
The experiments demonstrated that even with the lowered post-myxomatosis population densities, rabbit grazing pressure would significantly affect recruitment in arid zone Acacia populations in the South Australian arid zones.
Effects of Introduced Plants and Animals on Island Vegetation: Examples from Galápagos Archipelago
: Island ecosystems are particularly vulnerable to biological invasions. Since the early 1800s, humans have introduced to the Galapagos Islands animals and plants that threaten the native
The origin and extinction of the large endemic Pleistocene mammals of Cyprus
TLDR
The discovery at the site of Altrotiri /letokrenmos of the above pygmy mammal species together with man—made artefacts has been interpreted by some researchers as proof of a human role in the extinction of these mammals, but it is rejected that such a bridge never existed.
Vertebrate extinction in Mediterranean islets: an example from Cyprus
TLDR
This study attempts to tally all the extinctions that took place on the island of Cyprus and compares the emerging pattern with that of other islands, finding that the pattern of extinction of indigenous species was also observed on other islands and is a consequence of small isolated island populations.
Extinction of an Island Forest Avifauna by an Introduced Snake
The island of Guam has experienced a precipitous decline of its native forest birds, and several lines of evidence implicate the introduced brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis) as the cause of the
Seasonal and monthly distribution of deaths of Cyprus Mouflon Ovis gmelini ophion
TLDR
The high energy requirements of the rut, poor nutrition and health problems, in combination with the first winter cold, likely leads to the increased mortality observed in late fall and early winter.
Man and Beast in Chalcolithic Cyprus

The range of animals exploited during the Cypriot Chalcolithic shows continuity from the preceding Aceramic and Ceramic Neolithic periods. For the most part, caprines and pigs were probably herded,
Range expansion, population sizes, and management of wild pigs in California
TLDR
The recent increase in the range of wild pigs in California was facilitated by a combination of multiple hunting-related introductions, deliberate releases of domestic pigs, and, possibly, increased forage availability associated with agricultural development.
A colony-growth model for the imported fire ant: potential geographic range of an invading species
TLDR
Simulations suggest that the ratio of minor to major workers is an important determinant of overwintering ability and S. invicta colony dynamics, and other factors, such as alate production, food allocation within the colony, and competition with other ant colonies should be considered in future models.
