The Eurasian weed mossy stonecrop (Sedum acre L.), a tiny succulent plant of the Crassulaceae, is present on some alvar pavements on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. This study examined the rate of spread of mossy stonecrop on alvar pavement, and tested whether hand removal of stonecrop would eradicate the weed or possibly cause an increase in regrowth of it or other weeds. The study also looked at regrowth of mossy stonecrop in situ from fragments. Nine 1 × 1 m plots were given three different…

Biological invasions in the context of green roofs

This work considers current research in green roof ecology in light of the literature on biological invasions, focusing on plant invasion, and evaluates the role of species composition and novel communities, species interactions, succession, and dispersal on the trajectory of green roof plant communities.
