Acer rubrum (red maple) growth is negatively affected by soil from forest stands dominated by its invasive congener (Acer platanoides, Norway maple)

Abstract

Invasive species continue to alter the plant communities of the eastern United States. To better understand the mechanisms and characteristics associated with invasive success, we studied competition between two Acer species.
