Abstract

Biological invasion has been considered as one of the potential threats to ecological systems. The co-evolution of an invading species and an invaded community has an important role on the outcome of the species invasion, as some empirical studies have reported co-evolution during a process of invasion. This project aims to understand how an ecological community responds to invasion, including evolutionary perspective.
