Traits that differ between invasive alien and native plant species are frequently interpreted as traits conferring invasiveness. owever, such differences could reflect an introduction bias of alien species, particularly cultivated ones, or human-mediated election of cultivars of these species with certain traits. We tested whether this is the case for germination characterisics that are frequently reported to be associated with invasiveness. In a glasshouse experiment, we compared germination… CONTINUE READING
