Nevertheless, their role could be essential to the competitive success of the invader. We studied fungal endophytes in the widespread invasive Centaurea stoebe (common knapweed). A preliminary experiment showed that endophytes in roots of C. stoebe significantly reduced the biomass of evolutionarily naïve neighbours (Festuca idahoensis… CONTINUE READING
