Neue Zürcher Zeitung – Evolution makes invading species spread even faster

Today, invasive animals and plants spread all around the globe. Predicting the dynamics of these invasions is of great ecological and socio-economical interest. By using laboratory microcosm experiments and computer simulations, we showed that rapid evolution makes invading species spread even faster. The study published in Nature Communications got ample media coverage, e.g. in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.
