Data from: Establishment success of introduced amphibians increases in the presence of congeneric species

Reid Tingley, Benjamin L Phillips & Richard Shine
Darwin's naturalization hypothesis predicts that the success of alien invaders will decrease with increasing taxonomic similarity to the native community. Alternatively, shared traits between aliens and the native assemblage may preadapt aliens to their novel surroundings, thereby facilitating establishment (the preadaptation hypothesis). Here we examine successful versus failed introductions of amphibian species across the globe, and find that the probability of successful establishment is higher when congeneric species are present at introduction locations, and increases...
