The number of insect species that become invasive is growing rapidly. We do not yet understand well why some species settle in a novel environment and others do not. The studies in this special issue aim to measure life‐history traits and dispersal capacities of a range of invasive pest insects. This knowledge is crucial for predicting future colonization chances of non‐native insects as well as for risk assessment of novel biological control agents.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
