Fast life history traits promote invasion success in amphibians and reptiles (2017)
Journal Article
Street, S. E., Allen, W. L., & Capellini, I. (2017). Fast life history traits promote invasion success in amphibians and reptiles. Ecology letters, 20(2), (222-230). doi:10.1111/ele.12728. ISSN 1461-023X

Competing theoretical models make different predictions on which life history strategies facilitate growth of small populations. While ‘fast’ strategies allow for rapid increase in population size and limit vulnerability to stochastic events, ‘slow’... Read More

The role of life history traits in mammalian invasion success (2015)
Journal Article
Capellini, I., Baker, J., Allen, W. L., Street, S. E., & Venditti, C. (2015). The role of life history traits in mammalian invasion success. Ecology letters, 18(10), (1099-1107). doi:10.1111/ele.12493. ISSN 1461-023X

Why some organisms become invasive when introduced into novel regions while others fail to even establish is a fundamental question in ecology. Barriers to success are expected to filter species at each stage along the invasion pathway. No study to d... Read More
