Article
Full-text available
Biological invasions and climate change are important drivers of biodiversity loss. In freshwater ecosystems, golden and zebra mussels are two highly aggressive invasive species that have caused ecological and economic damages in South and North America, respectively. Here, we used ecological niche models (ENMs) to investigate the invasive potentia...

Phenotypic plasticity can determine the performance of exotic plants in environmental disturbance. Aquatic plants can adapt to the stress caused by water level fluctuations in the water level, water depth, or substrate nutrients through phenotypic plasticity. The high-potential invasiveness of Myriophyllum aquaticum in riparian wetlands may be asso...

The success of invasive species depends on the overcoming of abiotic and biotic filters. Abiotic variables likely have greater relative importance over invasion at broad spatial scales, while biotic interactions are more important at fine spatial scales. In this study, we tested the hypotheses that (i) the abundance of the invasive Hydrilla vertici...

The previously neglected herbivore-aquatic macrophyte interaction has received more attention from scientists in recent decades, especially in the context of biological invasions. However, there is still a great deal of work needed to improve scientific knowledge about this relationship, and to improve biological management and control techniques....

The last undammed stretch of the Upper Paraná River in the Brazilian territory is, to date, not completely inventoried, which rises concerns given the rapid rates of species extinctions. Aim Here, we provide an inventory of macrophyte taxa recorded in the last undammed 230 km stretch of the Upper Paraná River. Methods We inventoried macrophyte ta...
Article
Seed passage through the guts of bats potentially influences germination in different ways: physically, chemically and biologically. To evaluate the influence of a Neotropical bat on the seed germination of four pioneer plant species, an experiment was conducted. Considering the positive influence of bats on germination and the possibility of obser...
