Muthama; Catalan, Pilar; Shongwe, Eugene Z.; Viruel, Juan; Wilkin, Paul; van der Bank, Michelle // BMC Evolutionary Biology;11/8/2016, Vol. 16, p1 

    Background: Dioscorea is a widely distributed and highly diversified genus in tropical regions where it is represented by ten main clades, one of which diversified exclusively in Africa. In southern Africa it is characterised by a distinct group of species with a pachycaul or "elephant's foot"...

    Spatial variation in exotic species richness is often correlated with native species richness, for reasons that are poorly understood. To better understand the mechanisms underpinning native-exotic richness relationships, I quantified the colonization and extinction of 18 exotic and 16 native...
