Biological invasions are a global consequence of an increasingly connected world and the rise in human population size. The numbers of invasive alien species – the subset of alien species that spread widely in areas where ...
A unified classification of alien species based on the magnitude of their environmental impacts
(Public Library of Science, 2014-05-06)
Species moved by human activities beyond the limits of their native geographic ranges into areas in which they do not naturally occur (termed aliens) can cause a broad range of significant changes to recipient ecosystems; ...
Developing a list of invasive alien species likely to threaten biodiversity and ecosystems in the European Union
The European Union (EU) has recently published its first list of invasive alien species (IAS) of EU concern to which current legislation must apply. The list comprises species known to pose great threats to biodiversity ...
Global rise in emerging alien species results from increased accessibility of new source pools
(National Academy of Sciences, 2018-03-06)
Our ability to predict the identity of future invasive alien species is largely based upon knowledge of prior invasion history. Emerging alien species—those never encountered as aliens before—therefore pose a significant ...
TEASIng apart alien species risk assessments: A framework for best practices
