Riparian vegetation: Degradation, alien plant invasions, and restoration prospects
Rivers are conduits for materials and energy; this, the frequent and intense disturbances that these systems experience, and their narrow, linear nature, create problems for conservation ofExpand

Invasiveness in wetland plants in temperate North America
The spread of invasive taxa, includingLythrum salicaria, Typha × glauca, Myriophyllum spicatum, Phalaris arundinacea, andPhragmites australis, has dramatically changed the vegetation of many wetlandsExpand

Effects of Phalaris arundinacea and nitrate-N addition on the establishment of wetland plant communities
1. Nutrient enrichment may adversely impact plant species richness in wetlands and enhance their susceptibility to colonization and dominance by invasive species. For North American prairie wetlands,Expand

Consequences of habitat loss and fragmentation for wetland amphibian assemblages
Landscape-level variables operating at multiple spatial scales likely influence wetland amphibian assemblages but have not been investigated in detail. We examined the significance of habitat lossExpand

Anthropogenic effects on the biodiversity of riparian wetlands of a northern temperate landscape
Land uses such as forestry and agriculture are presumed to degrade the biodiversity of riparian wetlands in the northern temperate regions of the United States. In order to improve land use decisionExpand

The Vegetation of Wet Meadows in Relation to Their Land-use
Wetland biomonitoring approaches are needed to determine when changes in response to stressors are occurring and to predict the consequences of proposed land-use changes. These approaches require anExpand

Riparian scrub recovery after clearing of invasive alien trees in headwater streams of the Western Cape, South Africa
Headwater rivers are the predominant kind of aquatic ecosystem in South Africa’s Cape Floristic Region. Invasion by alien woody taxa (especially Acacia longifolia and Acacia mearnsii) have alteredExpand

Regional climate change adaptation strategies for biodiversity conservation in a midcontinental region of North America
Scenario planning should be an effective tool for developing responses to climate change but will depend on ecological assessments of broad enough scope to support decision-making. Using climateExpand

Differences in wetland plant community establishment with additions of nitrate-N and invasive species (Phalaris arundinacea and Typha ×glauca)
Restored prairie pothole wetlands in North America are often enriched by nitrate-N (NO3-N) that has been lost from surrounding agricultural systems. In addition, these wetlands are increasinglyExpand
