AlienImpacts aims to develop an approach for accurately predicting impacts of alien plants on floristic diversity, and to identify the circumstances under which negative impacts will occur.
The project uses temperate grasslands as a model system and combines experimental, observational, theoretical and quantitative approaches.
Funding for the project comes from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. ).
