Native to Japan, China and Korea, Elaeagnus umbellata Thunb. (autumn olive) was first cultivated in the United States in 1830 (Rehder 1940). Beginning in1940, autumn olive was evaluated for possible introduction by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service (Foose 1974). Today a common exotic shrub of the northeastern United States, autumn olive was widely planted to provide food and cover for wildlife. Extensively planted in Illinois during the 1960s, this species was not expected to escape from… Expand

Ecotypes diversity in autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata Thunb): A single plant with multiple micronutrient genes
TLDR
The plant has ample quantities of multiple micronutrients, thus indicating their expression through a powerful promoter at one place (fruit mesocarp) and this variability will be helpful in developing commercial varieties of the plant utilizing the conventional techniques of selection and hybridization for economic activities. Expand
Autumn Olive Control with Chlorflurenol
TLDR
Care should be taken when proposing the complete elimination of a non-native species that could be vital for an improved ecosystem, particularly the autumn olive, which is now classified as a highly invasive species in the United States. Expand
Physiological competitiveness of autumn olive compared with native woody competitors in open field and forest understory
TLDR
The results strongly support the high prioritization of AO control in forest understory habitats for restorative investment because of its competitive physiological traits and rapid rate of encroachment. Expand
An Evaluation of Chemical Treatment and Burning on the Control of Autumn Olive (Elaeagnus umbellate)
Since ceasing extensive planting of autumn olive, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has sought means to control the spread of autumn olive into open habitats. We conducted an evaluation ofExpand
Impact of an invasive exotic species on stream nitrogen levels in southern Illinois.
Autumn-olive (Elaeagnus umbellata Thunb.) is an invasive, exotic shrub that has become naturalized in the eastern United States. Autumn-olive fixes nitrogen (N) via a symbiotic relationship with theExpand
Environmental and Biotic Controls on the Invasion of the Exotic Shrub Elaeagnus umbellata in a Michigan Forest
Distinguishing the differences between invasive species and those of the invaded native community is important to understand both the mechanisms and the potential impacts of invasion. In this study,Expand
Watershed Vulnerability to Invasive N2-Fixing Autumn Olive and Consequences for Stream Nitrogen Concentrations.
TLDR
Results from this study demonstrate how encroachment of autumn olive can influence water quality and transform biogeochemical cycles in natural systems, which points to the need for effective management of autumn Olive in the edge watersheds and riparian zones that are vulnerable to invasion and increased N export.

Nitrogen Leaching Below Riparian Autumn Olive Stands in the Dormant Season
—Our research objective was to determine if excess nitrate (NO3) and ammonium (NH4+) were leaching below the rooting zones of autumn olive stands during the dormant season. Autumn olive is a nitrogenExpand
Community control on growth and survival of an exotic shrub
TLDR
This study indicates that although E. umbellata individuals are likely to recruit and persist in the understory, successful growth to adulthood is controlled by competitive interactions. Expand
