Special Papers: ALIEN FLORAS AND FAUNAS

This section includes papers that provide information on complete alien floras or faunas of large regions, such as countries, with clearly described criteria used to assess the species’ status as casual, naturalized, or invasive. The papers typically contain information on the structure of the studied alien flora or fauna, in terms of geographic origin, life histories, invaded habitat, time of introduction or introduction pathways, accompanied by an analysis of basic patterns of alien species richness, diversity, or impacts, as well as factors underlying variation in these characteristics. Full species lists with relevant available information must be published with the paper as electronic supplementary material.
