Invasive Species Compendium

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Special Issue: Macroecology of vegetation.

Abstract

This special issue contains 9 papers on macroecology of vegetation. Topics covered include: (1) the biogeography of alien plant invasions in the Mediterranean Basin; (2) alien plant invasion hotspots and invasion debt in European woodlands; (3) annual air temperature variability and biotic interactions explain tundra shrub species abundance; (4) neophyte invasions in European grasslands; (5) functional biogeography of weeds reveals how anthropogenic management blurs trait-climate relationships; (6) functional diversity of the Australian flora: strong links to species richness and climate; (7) community dissimilarity of angiosperm trees reveals deep-time diversification across tropical and temperate forests; (8) different sets of traits explain abundance and distribution patterns of European plants at different spatial scales; and (9) global functional variation in alpine vegetation.
