accidental invasions versus biological-control introductions

accidental invasions versus biological-control introductions

Accidentally introduced invasive species and those purposefully introduced for biological control efforts both have similar ecological needs to successfully become established in their non-native range. Thus, researchers who study invasion ecology and biological control practitioners have much to learn from each other. A new research review in the Annals of the Entomological Society of America finds communication between invasion ecologists and biological control experts tends to go one way, highlighting opportunities for invasion ecologists to benefit more from biocontrol publications and datasets. See details on the stages displayed in this figure. (Image originally published in Schulz et al 2021, Annals of the Entomological Society of America)
