Abstract/Summary

We investigated the effects on ladybirds of climate and habitat factors, species-level traits and niche overlap with the invasive non-native species Harmonia axyridis, on local-scale extinction and colonisation dynamics across mainland Britain. Several factors were significant, including habitat, climate & trait factors, but the strongest relationship was between extinction and niche overlap with H. axyridis.
