Using a novel database of 45,813 first records of 16,926 established alien species, we show that the annual rate of first records worldwide has increased during the last 200 years, with 37% of all first records reported most recently (1970–2014). Inter-continental and inter-taxonomic variation can be largely attributed to the diaspora of European settlers in the nineteenth century and to the acceleration in trade in the twentieth century. For all taxonomic groups, the increase in numbers of alien species does not show any sign of saturation and most taxa even show increases in the rate of first records over time. This highlights that past efforts to mitigate invasions have not been effective enough to keep up with increasing globalization.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Dyer, Ellie E.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Jeschke, Jonathan M.</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Dawson, Wayne</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dawson, Wayne</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hulme, Philip E.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2017-02-15</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Seebens, Hanno</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Seebens, Hanno</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Pagad, Shyama</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Essl, Franz</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Hulme, Philip E.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Genovesi, Piero</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dyer, Ellie E.</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-02-27T14:07:50Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Genovesi, Piero</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Pagad, Shyama</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>No saturation in the accumulation of alien species worldwide</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Blackburn, Tim M.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Blackburn, Tim M.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
