However, during recent centuries, the anthropogenic introduction of alien species has increasingly gained importance and altered the composition and richness of island species pools. We analyzed a large dataset for alien and native plants, ants, reptiles, mammals, and birds on 257 (sub) tropical islands, and showed that, except for birds, the number of naturalized alien species increases with isolation for all taxa, a pattern that is opposite to the negative SIR of native species. We argue that the reversal of the SIR for alien species is driven by an increase in island invasibility due to reduced diversity and increased ecological naiveté of native biota on the more remote islands.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Kreft, Holger</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Pergl, Jan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2018-09-06T11:29:01Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Pyšek, Petr</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Dawson, Wayne</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Remoteness promotes biological invasions on islands worldwide</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Kreft, Holger</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dawson, Wayne</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Moser, Dietmar</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Winter, Marten</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Weigelt, Patrick</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Moser, Dietmar</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lenzner, Bernd</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2018-09-11</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Pyšek, Petr</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Capinha, César</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
