This chapter reviews the influence of the recipient location on the probability of establishment success in exotic birds. This subject is another that has a long history within invasion ecology research but that has, in general, produced no clear consensus on what makes a site more or less invasible. This confusion has reigned in the study of avian invasions too, and heated arguments over the role of competition in determining establishment success may be recalled. The chapter reviews and updates this argument. It also considers the array of other biotic interactions that can influence establishment success such as predation, parasitism, and mutualistic interactions. Beyond the influence of species interactions, there is a clear role for the biophysical environment in determining the success of exotic bird introductions, which is also reviewed in this chapter.

Keywords:   environmental matching, human commensalisms, climate, interspecific competition, species richness, predation, enemy release
