A systematic literature search was conducted using ISI Web of Knowledge on October 2, 2014 with the following search terms: restor* AND grass* OR savanna AND (non-native* OR invas* OR invad* OR alien). The search was then refined to include only articles within the ‘Ecology’ Web of Science category which resulted in 340 articles. These articles were then screened to remove reviews and any articles not relevant to restoration ecology. This resulted in 103 retained articles for the systematic review (shown here). These articles were then individually analyzed and data including year of publication, average citation rate per year, diversity of statistical tests, type of tests, whether assumptions were tested, sample size and number and type of factors used were extracted
