Author: Stohlgren, Thomas J.; Flather, Curtis; Jarnevich, Catherine S.; Barnett, David T.; Kartesz, John;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: We find ourselves in general agreement with many of Harrison's remarks especially since we both find our data present a ' strong case that at county to state scales, exotic plant invasions have led to few native plant extinctions' (emphasis added, Harrison 2007: 000). Where we differ appears related to the breadth of scales to which our conclusions may apply. In addition to the Myth of Plant Species Saturation (henceforth, the Myth paper ) in question, we have published several complementary papers which may alleviate some of Harrison's concerns.
Keywords: Myth paper, conceptual models of saturation, species-area relationships (SAR), local-regional richness relationship
