A soil fertility gradient, ranging from infertile to highly fertile soils, may define whether or not a plant will establish and spread at a site. We evaluated whether or not such a fertility gradient exists for Rosa multiflora Thunb., a nonnative invasive shrub, and Kalmia latifolia L., a native problem shrub, in closed-canopy forests of the eastern U.S. We(More)

Botanists and ecologists have long been intrigued by ecosystem convergence, where similar ecosystems have developed in regions that are widely disjunct but that share a similar climate and landform. When I was introduced to the concept of ecosystem convergence in college, the Mediterranean-type climate regions (MTC) were used to illustrate the phenomenon.(More)
