Management of Microstegium vimineum Invasions and Recovery of Resident Plant Communities
Restoration of communities invaded by exotic plants requires effective eradication of the invader and reestablishment of the resident plant community. Despite the commonly cited need for techniquesExpand

Non-native grass invasion alters native plant composition in experimental communities
Invasions of non-native species are considered to have significant impacts on native species, but few studies have quantified the direct effects of invasions on native community structure andExpand

Positive feedbacks to growth of an invasive grass through alteration of nitrogen cycling
Understanding the mechanisms by which invasive plants maintain dominance is essential to achieving long-term restoration goals. While many reports have suggested invasive plants alter resourceExpand

Invasive plant removal method determines native plant community responses
Summary 1 Restoration of habitats invaded by non-native plants should include both the removal of invasive plants and re-establishment of native plant communities. To develop appropriateExpand

Invasive shrub distribution varies with distance to roads and stand age in eastern deciduous forests in Indiana, USA
We documented the relationship between densities of invasive exotic shrubs, distance to road, and successional age of the forest in 14 forested sites throughout central and southern Indiana. RoadwaysExpand

Variation for phenotypic plasticity among populations of an invasive exotic grass
Phenotypic plasticity is a common feature of plant invaders, but little is known about variation in plasticity among invading populations. Variation in plasticity of ecologically important traitsExpand

Experimental plant invasion reduces arthropod abundance and richness across multiple trophic levels
Plant invasions are known to have negative impacts on native plant communities, yet their influence on higher trophic levels has not been well documented. Past studies investigating the effects ofExpand

Assessing the Invasion Risk of Eucalyptus in the United States Using the Australian Weed Risk Assessment
Many agricultural species have undergone selection for traits that are consistent with those that increase the probability that a species will become invasive. However, the risk of invasion may beExpand

Non-native grass invasion suppresses forest succession
Multiple factors can affect the process of forest succession including seed dispersal patterns, seedling survival, and environmental heterogeneity. A relatively understudied factor affecting theExpand
