Trees and shrubs as invasive alien species - 2013 update of the global database

Diversity and Distributions, Vol. 19, No. 8. (August 2013), pp. 1093-1094,


The global database of invasive trees and shrubs (Richardson & Rejmánek, 2011; Diversity Distrib. 17, 788-809) has been updated, resulting in a total of 751 species (434 trees and 317 shrubs) from 90 families. Ten originally listed species were deleted (synonyms, inconclusive identification, etc.) and 139 additional invasive species (86 trees and 53 shrubs) are now included in the database. For many species, new records on their adventive distributions are added. The updated database also includes the native ranges for all ...


What makes a species invasive?

In Plant invasions: general aspects and special problems (1995), pp. 3-13
Keywords: invasive-species   pinus-spp  


The results of an analysis of characters associated with species invasiveness indicated that invasiveness of Pinus spp. was negatively correlated with mean seed mass, minimum juvenile period and mean interval between large seed crops. It is argued that a discriminant function based on these 3 characters can be used to detect invasive pines and for preliminary screening of invasive woody weeds in other groups of seed plants. Low nuclear DNA content (genome size) was thought to result from selection for minimum ...


Trees and shrubs as invasive alien species - A global review

Diversity and Distributions, Vol. 17, No. 5. (September 2011), pp. 788-809,


Aim  Woody plants were not widely considered to be important invasive alien species until fairly recently. Thousands of species of trees and shrubs have, however, been moved around the world. Many species have spread from planting sites, and some are now among the most widespread and damaging of invasive organisms. This article presents a global list of invasive alien trees and shrubs. It discusses taxonomic biases, geographical patterns, modes of dispersal, reasons for introductions and key issues regarding invasions of non-native ...


Conifers as invasive aliens: a global survey and predictive framework

Diversity and Distributions, Vol. 10, No. 5-6. (06 September 2004), pp. 321-331,


We summarize information on naturalized and invasive conifers (class Pinopsida) worldwide (data from 40 countries, some with remote states/territories), and contrast these findings with patterns for other gymnosperms (classes Cycadopsida, Gnetopsida and Ginkgoopsida) and for woody angiosperms. Eighty conifer taxa (79 species and one hybrid; 13% of species) are known to be naturalized, and 36 species (6%) are 'invasive'. This categorization is based on objective and conservative criteria relating to consistency of reproduction, distance of spread from founders, and degree of ...


Toward a Causal Explanation of Plant Invasiveness: Seedling Growth and Life‐History Strategies of 29 Pine (Pinus) Species

The American Naturalist, Vol. 159, No. 4. (April 2002), pp. 396-419,


We studied 29 pine (Pinus) species to test the hypothesis that invasive species in disturbed habitats have distinct attributes. Seedling relative growth rate (RGR) and measures of invasiveness were positively associated across species as well as within phylogenetically independent contrasts. High RGR, small seed masses, and short generation times characterize pine species that are successful invaders in disturbed habitats. Discriminant analysis and logistic regression revealed that RGR was the most significant factor among these life-history traits separating invasive and noninvasive species. ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
