Biological invasions are gaining attention as a major threat to biodiversity and an important element of global change. Recent research indicates that other components of global change, such as increases in nitrogen deposition and atmospheric CO 2 concentration, favor groups of species that share certain physiological or life history traits.

New evidence suggests that many invasive. (shelved 1 time as great-basin) avg rating — 4, ratings — published The term "Great Basin" is applied to hydrographic, [3] [4] biological, [3] floristic, [4] physiographic, [4] topographic, [3] and ethnographic geographic areas.
