Description We ask whether changes in beta diversity of plant communities due to introduction of alien species result from changes in species turnover or from differences in species richness. Using dataset of European urban habitats we show that changes in beta diversity induced by the establishment of alien species reflect mainly species turnover, whereas the richness difference component has small effects.
