Cover for Plant invasions: the role of biotic interactions.

This book contains 23 chapters divided into seven parts. Part I reviews the key hypotheses in invasion ecology that invoke biotic interactions to explain aspects of plant invasion dynamics; and reviews models, theories and hypotheses on how invasion performance and impact of introduced species in...

Cover for The role of biotic interactions in invasion ecology: theories and hypotheses.

Changes in biotic interactions in the native and invaded range can enable a non-native species to establish and spread in novel environments. Invasive non-native species can in turn generate impacts in recipient systems partly through the changes they impose on biotic interactions; these...

Cover for Biological control in French Guiana, Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Several biological control agents have been introduced successfully in French Guiana, Guadeloupe and Martinique: three tachinid dipterans and one hymenopteran for control of sugarcane borers, a ladybird and a hymenopteran parasitoid against the pink hibiscus mealybug, a hymenopteran parasitoid to...

Cover for Biological control in Guyana.

Conservation biological control, implemented in the 1910s by erecting perches in rice fields for insectivorous birds, resulted in effective control of the fall armyworm. Guyana is supposed to be the first country where the tachinid parasitoid Lydella minense, which had been collected in 1932 in...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for The role of plant-plant facilitation in non-native plant invasions.

Biological invasions are one the most important drivers of the current environmental changes generating important biodiversity losses. Although several hypotheses have been proposed to understand the mechanisms underpinning biological invasions, most of them relate to negative interactions among...

Cover for Direct and indirect effects of herbivores influencing plant invasions.

Non-native plants rarely escape damage by herbivores. Instead, upon arrival in a new region, they begin to acquire new enemies, replacing those they have lost during their migration. These herbivores can include both natives to the new region and species that have themselves been accidentally or...

Cover for Impacts of non-native plants on plant-pollinator interactions.

There has been growing interest in the consequences of invasive non-native plants for the plant-pollinator mutualism, most likely because of its relevance for the maintenance of terrestrial biodiversity and food production. However, the development of this research field has been thematically...
