Species invasions and deletions: community effects and responses to climate and habitat change
A review of current generalizations about invasions in terrestrial and aquatic habitats is presented, including models of invasion and their accuracy (notably verbal and statistical models), the percentage of colonists which become invaders, the cause of failure of colonists, the percentage of colonists which have an impact on a native community, the accuracy of components of the verbal model and the ability of models to predict the success and impact of invasions. An alternative perspective on invasions is also discussed and aquatic case studies (notably fishes in northern temperate lakes, the North American great lakes and crayfish dispersal in lakes) are presented.
