Disturbance – either natural or anthropogenic – may make a community more easily invadable, particularly for plants.
The biotic resistance and disturbance hypotheses are complementary if we view them from the perspective of resource availability.
A species-rich community with intense competition may be less invadable until disturbance alters the availability of resources, either by providing new resources, or by reducing the effectiveness of competitors, allowing an invader to establish (Fig. 9.14)
