The biology of Canadian weeds. 134. Bromus inermis Leyss
Smooth brome (Bromus inermis Leyss.), a native of central Eurasia, was introduced to Canada as a forage and hay crop around 1888. Early reports of plants escaped from cultivation appear in 1903,Expand

Clonal integration facilitates the proliferation of smooth brome clones invading northern fescue prairies
Predicting exotic invaders and reducing their impacts on the biodiversity and function of native ecosystems require understanding of the mechanisms that facilitate their success during key stages ofExpand

Invasion or retreat? The fate of exotic invaders on the northern prairies, 40 years after cattle grazing
Despite the detrimental impacts of invasive plants on native biodiversity, ecosystem function, and management cost, few studies have focused on the long-term persistence of invaders. Here, we use aExpand

Reduced vigor of a clonal invader: Lack of evidence for soilborne pathogens
Abstract Predicting the impacts of exotic species on native ecosystems requires an understanding of the ecological processes that regulate biological invasions. Despite accumulating evidence thatExpand

Landscape Disturbances Impact Affect the Distribution and Abundance of Exotic Grasses in Northern Fescue Prairies
Abstract The presence of landscape disturbances increases the establishment of exotic plants inside natural areas. Here, we examine the effect of human disturbances to prairie landscapes on theExpand

A strong test of a maximum entropy model of trait-based community assembly.
We evaluate the predictive power and generality of Shipley's maximum entropy (maxent) model of community assembly in the context of 96 quadrats over a 120-km2 area having a large (79) species poolExpand

Reconciling Seed Dispersal and Seed Bank Observations to Predict Smooth Brome (Bromus inermis) Invasions of a Northern Prairie
Abstract The importance of dispersal in the establishment and proliferation of exotic populations make this life history stage critical in the prediction and management of biological invasions. WeExpand

Importance of species diversity in the revegetation of Alberta’s northern fescue prairies
Restoration of grassland ecosystems is critical to the provision of ecosystem services, however, legacies of historic disturbances pose a challenge to grassland restoration. In the northern GreatExpand
