Invasive Acer platanoides inhibits native sapling growth in forest understorey communities

  title={Invasive Acer platanoides inhibits native sapling growth in forest understorey communities},
  author={shannon l. galbraith-Kent and Steven N. Handel},
1. Over three growing seasons, we tested how an invasive tree species ( Acer platanoides ) affected native plant growth in understorey communities of a suburban forest in central New Jersey, USA. We planted similar aged and sized saplings ( ≥ 0.25 m tall) into experimental plots identified with one of three treatments (0%, 25% and 50% of total stems are invasive species) and hypothesized native species would grow better in communities lacking invasive plants. 2. There was a plant survival rate… CONTINUE READING
