THE PROJECT

We are building a global database of habitat affiliation of naturalized and invasive alien plants in their native and introduced ranges. Moreover, we are collecting data on naturalized and invasive plants in protected areas worldwide. This data will allow to test a new generation of hypotheses which aim to explain the variation in invasions across species, regions and biomes.


Overall, we have four main objectives:
