The spread of nonindigenous species in aquatic ecosystems provides an opportunity to develop new perspectives on the invasion process. In this paper we review existing invasion models, most of which were developed to describe invasions of terrestrial habitats, and propose an alternative that...
This report summarizes up to 39 years of plant community development trends on Syncrude’s reclaimed mine sites near Fort McMurray, Alberta. These trends are contrasted with a target condition, defined here as the Natural Range of Variability for species composition on older (60+ yrs) closed...
Invasive plant species often come to dominate the community where they have become introduced, posing a serious threat to plant diversity and ecosystem functions. Yet, the long-term dynamics and impacts of invasive species do not necessarily remain constant and may attenuate over time due to...
The Drivers of Invasive Species Establishment and Impact on Ecological and Evolutionary Aspects of Resident Plant CommunitiesDownload
Invasive species can have important ecological and evolutionary impacts on resident species. Yet, we still lack a broad understanding of the conditions that determine invasive species establishment, performance and impact on ecological and evolutionary aspects of communities. In this thesis, I...
