Cover for Communicating the dynamic complexities of climate and ecology: species invasion and resource changes.

As the population reaches beyond 7 billion, the impact of human activities on the global environment will begin to alter substantially the complex biological systems necessary to support life. Of particular concern are anthropogenic changes in atmospheric composition that are altering the climatic...

Cover for Invasive plants in a rapidly changing climate: an Australian perspective.

Invasive plants in Australia are currently among the greatest threats to native biological diversity and a significant cost to agriculture. The impact of climate change is projected to be particularly significant for Australia and will add to and change the impact of invasive plants on natural and...

Cover for Climate change and plant pathogen invasions.

Climate has an important effect on plant disease and the probability of plant pathogen invasions, through effects on hosts and pathogen vectors as well as on the pathogens themselves. Aerially dispersed pathogens are an important group of plant pathogens, and their dispersal and invasion may be...

Cover for Climate change, plant traits and invasion in natural and agricultural ecosystems.

Invasive plant species often thrive in new and resource-rich environments and may therefore benefit from global changes that create such environments. Global change effects on invasion risk will depend both on the environment in which competition between invasive and resident plant species occurs...

Cover for Non-native species in Antarctic terrestrial environments: the impacts of climate change and human activity.

Antarctic terrestrial biodiversity is simple compared to other regions of the Earth, with many higher taxonomic groups not represented, due to the continent's isolation, the severe climatic conditions and the relative scarcity of suitable habitats. So far, Antarctic biodiversity has been little...

Cover for Synergies between climate change and species invasions: evidence from marine systems.

The hypothesis that climate change will facilitate species invasions has recently received increasing focus in studies of marine systems. Over the past decade, approaches to testing this hypothesis have shifted from time-series observations of concomitant increases in both processes to experimental ...
