Biogeographic differences in the effects of Centaurea stoebe on the soil nitrogen cycle: novel weapons and soil microbes

Abstract

The success of some invasive plants may be due in part to native organisms lacking adaptation to species-specific biochemical traits of invaders—the Novel Weapons Hypothesis. We tested this hypothesis in the context of soil microbial communities by comparing the effects of Centaurea stoebe and the root exudate (±)-catechin, on ammonification and… (More)
