Cover for Invasion biology: hypotheses and evidence.

This book, containing 18 chapters, combines the hierarchy-of-hypotheses (HoH) approach with hypothesis networks for invasion biology. This book aims to further develop the HoH approach by inviting critical comments (Part I), apply it to 12 major invasion hypotheses (Part II) and explore how it can...

Cover for Invasion biology: searching for predictions and prevention, and avoiding lost causes.

The introduction and establishment of alien species is one of the many profound influences of ongoing anthropogenic global environmental change. Invasion biology has emerged as the interdisciplinary study of the patterns, processes and consequences of the redistribution of biodiversity across all...

Cover for The hierarchy-of-hypotheses approach.

Reviewing empirical evidence for major hypotheses in ecology is connected to two methodological challenges. First, all available empirical tests for a given hypothesis should be identified, collected and organized. This can be difficult due to divergent formulations of the hypothesis in the...

Cover for Hierarchy of hypotheses or hierarchy of predictions? Clarifying key concepts in ecological research.

Hypotheses and predictions are the core of scientific research, and are fundamentally different. Nonetheless, predictions are constantly confused with hypotheses in the scientific literature. The hypothetic-deductive method starts with a question to which potential explanations - hypotheses - are...

Cover for A hierarchy of hypotheses or a network of models.

Many different explanations for biological invasions have been proposed, yet there is little evidence that any of them are general. Invasion biologists are increasingly favouring a multicausal outlook rather than seeking single explanations of invasions, or seeking to identify a list of...

Cover for The hierarchy-of-hypotheses approach updated - a toolbox for structuring and analysing theory, research and evidence.

In Chapters 3, 4 and 5, three groups of authors have commented on the hierarchy-of-hypotheses (HoH) approach as introduced in Chapter 2. Here, we make suggestions on how to account for the issues raised in Chapters 3-5, whilst also considering several comments by other colleagues that we received...

Cover for A network of invasion hypotheses.

Hypotheses of research disciplines are typically not isolated from each other but share similarities. In a broad sense as defined here, they form an important part of the theoretical-conceptual understanding of a given topic, e.g. invasion hypotheses sensu lato represent an important part of our...

Cover for Disturbance hypothesis.

The disturbance hypothesis posits that the invasion success of non-native species is higher in highly disturbed than in relatively undisturbed ecosystems. A synonymous formulation is that highly disturbed ecosystems show lower resistance against nonnative species than relatively undisturbed...

Cover for Invasional meltdown hypothesis.

Positive interactions among species can be central for community structure and ecosystem functioning. Given the current scenario of species invasions worldwide, the question arises how non-native species will interact in the new environment. Such reasoning has led to the invasional meltdown...

Cover for Enemy release hypothesis.

The enemy release hypothesis is a prominent explanation for invasion success. It is, however, a complex multi-faceted hypothesis and has multiple sub-hypotheses. Empirical tests of the enemy release hypothesis therefore often address very different questions. For this reason, we previously applied...
