Threatened and Invasive Reptiles Are Not Two Sides of the Same CoinGlobal Ecology and Biogeography
AbstractThe ‘two sides of the same coin’ hypothesis posits that biological traits that predispose species to extinction and invasion lie on opposite ends of a continuum. Conversely, anthropogenic factors may have similar effects on extinction and invasion risk. We test these two hypotheses using data on more than 1000 reptile species.
