Resprouting potential of rhizome fragments in an invasive aquatic plant

Non-native aquatic Ludwigia species from a polyploid complex are among the world’s most problematic invasive plants. A new paper in AoBP finds out why.

Morpho-physiological dormancy described in seeds of waterlilies (Nymphaea)

Substantial evidence supports morpho-physiological dormancy (MPD) as the basal kind of seed dormancy in flowering plants. However, for seeds of waterlilies (Nymphaea, Nymphaeaceae), only...

Trait responses of invasive aquatic macrophyte congeners: colonizing diploid outperforms polyploidy

Polyploidy (multiple copies of whole genomes) is over-represented in invasive plants and thought to promote their success in novel environments.  Understanding functional traits supporting...
