Distribution and spread of environmental weeds along New Zealand roadsides
(New Zealand Ecological Society., 2009)
Most non-native weeds and other naturalised plants are in the early stages of invasion into New Zealand landscapes. For this invasion to be controlled, even partially, it is important to understand the dominant routes, ...
Feathers to Fur: the status of New Zealand ecological research in 2009
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2010)
We outline the scope of this special issue of New Zealand Journal of Ecology, which reviews progress in New Zealand ecology to 2009, based on a symposium in 2007. Both the issue and symposium update a 1986 conference and ...
Life histories, dispersal, invasions, and global change: progress and prospects in New Zealand ecology, 1989–2029
(New Zealand Ecological Society., 2010)
We highlight three areas of significant progress in ecology since 1989 which are particularly relevant to New Zealand, and three major challenges for the next two decades. Progress: (1) The unusual life histories of New ...
Novel host associations and habitats for Senecio-specialist herbivorous insects in Auckland
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2008)
We studied the genus- and species-specialist monophagous herbivorous insects of Senecio (Asteraceae) in Auckland, New Zealand. With the exception of the widespread S. hispidulus, the eight native Senecio species in mainland ...
Quantifying invasion resistance: the use of recruitment functions to control for propagule pressure
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the Ecological Society of America, 2014-04)
Invasive species distributions tend to be biased towards some habitats compared to others due to the combined effects of habitat-specific resistance to invasion and non-uniform propagule pressure. These two factors may ...
Creek habitats as sources for the spread of an invasive herb in a New Zealand mountain landscape
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2015)
Landscapes typically comprise various habitats that differ in their susceptibility to invasion by exotic species. Highly invasible habitats such as riparian corridors can act as a conduit for rapid movement across the ...
