      Willis, Charles G.; Ruhfel, Brad R; Primack, Richard B.; Miller-Rushing, Abraham J.; Losos, Jonathan; Davis, Charles (Public Library of Science, 2010)
      Invasive species have tremendous detrimental ecological and economic impacts. Climate change may exacerbate species invasions across communities if non-native species are better able to respond to climate changes than ...
    • Phylogenetic patterns of species loss in Thoreau's woods are driven by climate change 

      Willis, Charles George; Ruhfel, B; Primack, R. B.; Miller-Rushing, A. J.; Davis, Charles Cavender (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2008)
      Climate change has led to major changes in the phenology (the timing of seasonal activities, such as flowering) of some species but not others. The extent to which flowering-time response to temperature is shared among ...
