Hybrids may succeed where invasive species fail as sea levels rise

Invasive species might suffer from a change in conditions in tidal areas, but their hybrid offspring may have genes to survive.

Linking invasive–native plant competition to foraging and nutrient conditions

The effects of the competition between invasive and native plants have rarely been linked with root foraging behaviour. Chen et al. performed a competition...

Effect of asymmetric warming on plant invasion

Although many studies have documented the effects of global warming on invasive plants, little is known about whether the effects of warming on plant...

Impact of an invasive nitrogen-fixing tree on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and development of native species

The presence of invasive plants has been identified as a soil disturbance factor, often conditioning the structure and function of soil microorganisms. Despite the...

Prosopis: A global assessment of the biogeography, benefits, impacts and management of one of the world’s worst woody invasive plant taxa

Invasive species cause ecological, economic and social impacts and are key drivers of global change. This is the case for the genus Prosopis (mesquite;...

Belowground advantages in construction cost facilitate a cryptic plant invasion

The energetic cost of plant organ construction is a functional trait that is useful in understanding carbon investment during growth (e.g., the resource acquisition...

Physiological ecology and functional traits of North American native and Eurasian introduced Phragmites australis lineages

Biological invasions pose serious threats to biodiversity and ecosystem services worldwide.  While the effects of invasive species are well-documented, less is known about which...

Functional traits and plant invasions (Invited Review)

Global environmental change will affect non-native plant invasions, with profound potential impacts on native plant populations, communities and ecosystems. In this context, Drenovsky et al. review...

Leaf functional traits of invasive and native woody vines

Success of invasive plant species is thought to be linked with their higher leaf carbon fixation strategy. Osunkoya et al. (pp. 371–380) show that...

New grapevine model better predicts whole-canopy gas exchange

Models considering only the maximum photosynthetic capacity for all leaves over-estimated net carbon dioxide exchange by nearly a third.

Phylogeny, age and adaptive evolution of genus Allium

The genus Allium L., one of the largest monocotyledonous genera and one that includes many economically important crops with nutritional and medicinal...

Plants from different climates can react to drought in similar ways

How do plants react when circumstances change? One method can be to evolve a local adaptation. Another can be be phenotypic plasticity,...

Not All Pine Needles Are Identical: Lower Crown Loss in Pinus radiata

When fungal infection comes to Pinus radiata, it can run through the bottom of the crown of the tree, removing its leaves....
