Cattail Invasion of Sedge/Grass Meadows in Lake Ontario: Photointerpretation Analysis of Sixteen Wetlands over Five Decades
ABSTRACT Photointerpretation studies were conducted to evaluate vegetation changes in wetlands of Lake Ontario and the upper St. Lawrence River associated with regulation of water levels since about…
Assessment of suitable habitat for Phragmites australis (common reed) in the Great Lakes coastal zone
In the Laurentian Great Lakes, the invasive form of Phragmites australis (common reed) poses a threat to highly productive coastal wetlands and shorelines by forming impenetrable stands that…

Promoting Species Establishment in a Phragmites-Dominated Great Lakes Coastal Wetland
ABSTRACT: This study examined efforts to promote species establishment and maintain diversity in a Phragmites-dominated wetland where primary control measures were underway. A treatment experiment…

Evaluated endophyte communities among tissue types, geographical regions, and the interaction between those factors indicated significant differences, but no differences among individual ramets were detected.
A water-budget approach to restoring a sedge fen affected by diking and ditching
Disease protection and allelopathic interactions of seed-transmitted endophytic pseudomonads of invasive reed grass (Phragmites australis)
Phragmites plants associate with endophytes to increase growth and disease resistance, and release bacteria into the soil to create an environment that is favorable to their seedlings and less favorable to competitor plants.
Using Turbidity Measurements to Estimate Total Phosphorus and Sediment Flux in a Great Lakes Coastal Wetland
Coastal wetlands around the Laurentian Great Lakes in North America have the potential to intercept surface water coming off of the landscape and reduce the amount of nutrients and sediment entering…
Growth and Behavior of North American Microbes on Phragmites australis Leaves
This work systematically inoculated both plant lineages with a diverse array of 162 fungal and bacterial isolates to determine which could differentiate between Phragmites hosts, infect leaves at various stages of development, or obtain plant-based carbon saprophytically.
Review: Endophytic microbes and their potential applications in crop management
It is suggested that endophytic microbes may significantly reduce use of agrochemicals in the cultivation of crop plants by transfer of endophytes from wild relatives of crops to crop species.
