The invasion paradox dissolves when using phylogenetic and temporal perspectives

Adrienne Ernst, Rebecca Barak, Andrew Hipp, Andrea Kramer, Hannah Marx & Daniel Larkin
1. Elton’s prediction that higher biodiversity leads to denser niche-packing and thus higher community resistance to invasion has long been studied, with species richness as the predominant measure of diversity. However, few studies have explored how phylogenetic and functional diversity, which should represent niche space more faithfully than taxonomic diversity, influence community invasibility, especially across longer time frames and over larger spatial extents. 2. We used a 15-year, 150-site grassland dataset to assess relationships between...
