Life history studies and demographic models may be valuable for examining the introduction of invasive species and identifying life history stages where management will be most effective.  ...  Evolutionary processes may be key features in determining whether invasive species establish and spread.  ...  Hence, the rate and extent of invasive fronts may depend on the degree and pattern of gene flow among populations of an invasive species as the species spreads from its initial sites of colonization.  ...
