Effect Of Invasive Plants On Species Richness Depends On Scale

Washington University in St. Louis In Missouri forests, dense thickets of invasive honeysuckle decrease the light available to other plants, hog the attention of pollinators, and offer nutrient-stingy berries to migrating birds. They even release toxins to make it less likely native plants will germinate near them. Why, then, are recent popular science articles recommending a recalibration of the traditional no-tolerance attitude toward non-native species, suggesting that we´ve...

Evolutionary traps, invasive yellow starthistle´s favorable response to carbon dioxide and plant breeding for harmony between agriculture and the environment Evolutionary traps in human-dominated landscapes A study published in the September issue of Ecology looks at how human activities can diminish the usefulness of an ornamental trait, such as colorful feathers, as a signal of fitness. Cardinals, for example, need carotenoids in their diet to produce their red plumage; brilliant...

More than half of the world's population now lives in cities, yet we know little about how urbanization affects biodiversity. In one the first studies of its kind, ecologists in Indianapolis, USA have used 70 year-old dried plant specimens to track the impact of increasing urbanization on plants. The results are published this week in the British Ecological Society's Journal of Ecology. Lead by Dr Rebecca Dolan, director of the Friesner Herbarium, Butler University, the team examined 2,800...

By Cipollini, Kendra A McClain, Georgette Y; Cipollini, Don ABSTRACT. - Invasive plants can exert their effects on native plants through both above- and belowground mechanisms. In a fully factorial field study, we examined the effects of activated carbon addition and removal of aboveground biomass (i.e., cutting) on the survival, growth and reproduction of transplanted Impatiens capensis seedlings in habitats dominated by either Lonicera maackii (honeysuckle) or Alliaria petiolata (garlic...

The leaves are opposite, simple oval, and from 1"“10 cm long; most are...
