Microbes as Targets and Mediators of Allelopathy in Plants
Studies of allelopathy in terrestrial systems have experienced tremendous growth as interest has risen in describing biochemical mechanisms responsible for structuring plant communities, determiningExpand

Does herbivory really suppress mycorrhiza? A meta‐analysis
Summary 1. In managed and natural ecosystems, herbivory can have a major impact on plant growth. Defoliation and shoot removal reduce the photosynthetic capacity of plants and are also thought toExpand

How novel are the chemical weapons of garlic mustard in North American forest understories?
The Novel Weapons Hypothesis predicts that invasive plants excel in their new ranges because they produce novel metabolites to which native species possess little resistance. We examined the noveltyExpand

Contributions of biotic and abiotic factors to soil aggregation across a land use gradient
Abstract Soil aggregation is a major ecosystem process that can be impacted by intensified land use directly through soil disturbances, or indirectly through impacts on biotic and abiotic factorsExpand

Fungal superhighways: do common mycorrhizal networks enhance below ground communication?
In many natural communities communication between plants and other organisms below ground drives community dynamics. This communication is primarily through the release and detection ofExpand

Half-lives and field soil concentrations of Alliaria petiolata secondary metabolites.
The allelopathic potential of Alliaria petiolata is well established in the lab, but questions remain about the importance of these processes in natural settings, partly because we know so littleExpand

Differences in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities associated with sugar maple seedlings in and outside of invaded garlic mustard forest patches
Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is a Eurasian native that has become invasive in North America. The invasive success of A. petiolata has been partly attributed to its production of allelopathicExpand

The Fungal Fast Lane: Common Mycorrhizal Networks Extend Bioactive Zones of Allelochemicals in Soils
Allelopathy, a phenomenon where compounds produced by one plant limit the growth of surrounding plants, is a controversially discussed factor in plant-plant interactions with great significance forExpand

Testing the optimal defense theory and the growth-differentiation balance hypothesis in Arabidopsis thaliana
Two prominent theories proposed to explain patterns of chemical defense expression in plants are the optimal defense theory (ODT) and the growth-differentiation balance hypothesis (GDBH). The ODTExpand

Fertilization affects severity of disease caused by fungal plant pathogens
Commercial fertilizers are commonly applied in farming to maximize crop yield. Lifting nutrient limitation to plant growth when water and light conditions are sufficient may permit plants to grow toExpand
