A closer look at invasiveness and relatedness: life histories, temperature and establishment success of four congeners

Jennifer Rehage, Eric Maurer, Laura Lopez & Andy Sih
Successful invasive species are often closely related to other invasive species suggesting that shared traits contribute to their invasion success. Alternatively, related species can differ in invasiveness, where some are highly invasive yet congeners seem unable to invade. Here, we compared the traits and establishment abilities of two highly successful invasive species, Gambusia affinis and G. holbrooki to those of two close relatives, G. geiseri and G. hispaniolae. Using laboratory experiments, we compared low temperature...
