Comparisons of plastic responses to irradiance and physiological traits by invasive Eupatorium adenophorum and its native congeners.

Abstract

To explore the traits contributing to invasiveness of Eupatorium adenophorum and to test the relationship between plasticity of these traits and invasiveness, we compared E. adenophorum with its two native congeners at four irradiances (10%, 23%, 40%, and 100%). The invader showed constantly higher performance (relative growth rate and total biomass) across… (More)
