Biological invasions are among the greatest drivers of species extinctions worldwide and can cause severe impairments of ecosystem services, imposing huge economic costs on society. Ants (Formicidae) are among the worst invasive species, with more than 200 species established outside their native range and 19 listed as highly problematic by the IUCN. I am interested in understanding the mechanisms and drivers of ant invasions at a broad spatial scale. I am developing an integrative framework for predicting invasions based on factors determining species invasiveness and community invasibility. The idea is to investigate the relative role of functional traits, socio-economic factors, propagule pressure, environmental conditions, and native biodiversity in determining introduction probability and establishment success in order to predict future invasions.
