    Brian Leung
    Department of Biology and School of Environment, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 274:2603-9. 2007
    ..We show that predictions of invasion progress as well as of the long-term invasion pattern are strongly affected by using a joint model...

    Stefanie A Kulhanek
    Department of Biology, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1B1 Canada
    Ecol Appl 21:189-202. 2011
