Alternanthera philoxeroides is one of the worst weeds in China. The successful invasion of alligator weeds is not only associated with its specific biological characteristics, such as vegetative propagation, high phenotypic plasticity, extensive adaptability, strong stress resistance and so on, but also related to the invasibility of the habitat it invaded, lack of natural enemies and global climate change. It is essential to integrate physical, chemical and biological means, intensify regional… Expand
Exploiting fodder and nutritive value of Alternanthera philoxeroides (alligator weed) at different times of harvest: a potential fodder weed
TLDR
Keeping in view the nutritive quality, digestibility and fodder yield, 70 DAE was the best time of harvest and Alternanthera philoxeroides possess nutritive value comparable to that of alfalfa, sorghum and maize. Expand

Ecology Research Progress on Invasion Control of Alligator Weed Alternanthera philoxeroides (Mart.) Griseb
TLDR
This paper summarized the related ecology research results on preventing and controlling alligator weeds so as to provide with theory/practical basis for preventing its invasion more effectively. Expand
Bionomics of Agasicles hygrophila, as the natural enemy for invasive weed, Alternanthera philoxeroides.
TLDR
Morphological characters and behaviors of A. hygrophila were described in this paper and it is shown that Flea beetle, Agasicles hygphila Selma Vogt, a host-specific natural enemy, controls the weed successfully in the world. Expand
Effect of Alternanthera philoxeroides,an invasive exotic weed,on plant biodiversity.
TLDR
The analysis of relationship between the importance value of Alligator weed and species diversity of the samples showed that when the former reaches 1.5, the latter decreased with the rise of the former,demonstrating a significant correlation between them, which suggests that the invasion of Alligators weed is harmful to biodiversity.

Study on Tolerance of Alternanthera philoxeroides to Heavy Metals
TLDR
The results indicated that A. philoxeroides was able to survive in a certain concentration of heavy metals pollution of the environment and it was the accumulation heavy metal plant species. Expand
Biological control of neotropical aquatic weeds with fungi
TLDR
Although intensive search of the mycobiota of water hyacinth and other plant species are recent, they have already yielded a range of new potential biocontrol agents. Expand
EFFECT OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND PHYSIOLOGICAL VARIATIONS IN THE ECOTYPES OF ALLIGATORWEED, ALTERNANTHERA PHILOXEROIDES ON THE PUPATION RATE OF ITS BIOCONTROL AGENT AGASICLES HYGROPHILA
TLDR
The pupation rate and the biological control effect of the flea beetle on A. philoxeroides are affected primarily by the thickness of vascular cylinder, cortex parenchyma, pith cavity parenchma and the density of cortex p Karenchyma of its host plant. Expand
Impacts of the invasion of Alternanthera philoxeroides on the species composition and diversity of native vegetation community
The influence of invasive Alternanthera philoxeroides on local vegetation community composition and biodiversity was systematically studied in the suburb of Shangrao city,Jiangxi province.20 plotsExpand
Allelopathy comparison of Eupatorium adenophroum and Artemisia scoparia rhizosphere soil on rape seed.
TLDR
Comparisons with that of Artemisia scoparia on rape seed Brassica napus for the first time showed that both E.adenophroum and A.scoparia significantly inhibited shoot and root growth of B.napus, and inhibition rate of A. Scoparia is significantly higher than that of E. Adenoph Roum. Expand
Performance of Agasicles hygrophila (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), a biological control agent of invasive alligator weed, at low non-freezing temperatures
TLDR
The results indicated that A. hygrophila has the capacity to stand relatively low non-freezing temperatures for short durations, which would help it to overwinter and establish natural populations in some areas, especially in areas where protected cultivations are extensive and ambient temperatures are not as low as those in the open field. Expand
Effects of clonal integration on growth of Alternanthera philoxeroides under simulated acid rain and herbivory
TLDR
A greenhouse experiment to investigate the effects of clonal integration on the stoloniferous invasive plant Alternanthera philoxeroides under homogeneous, stressful environments suggests that alligator weed can well adapt to acid rain stress and clonal Integration play a limited role under acid rain Stress.
