Quarantine arthropod invasions in Europe: the role of climate, hosts and propagule pressure

Aim To quantify the relative importance of propagule pressure, climatematching and host availability for the invasion of agricultural pest arthropods in Europe and to forecast newly emerging pest species and European areas with the highest risk of arthropod invasion under current climate and a future climate scenario (A1F1). Location Europe. Methods We quantified propagule pressure, climate-matching and host availability by…
