Surrogacy in invasion research and management: inferring “impact” from “invasiveness”

O'Loughlin, Luke; Gooden, Ben; Barney, Jacob N; Lindenmayer, David B


Biological invasions are widely accepted drivers of biodiversity decline, yet the ecological impacts of invaders in many contexts remain largely unmeasured. Consequently, other measures of a species invasion (e.g. local abundance) are regularly used as surrogates (or ‘proxies’) to infer impact on recipient ecosystems. The use of surrogates for impact represents an implicit application of ecological surrogacy in invasion science, but without the evaluation and validation of surrogate-target...[Show more]
