Invasive Plant and Experimental Venue Affect Tadpole Performance

  title={Invasive Plant and Experimental Venue Affect Tadpole Performance},
  author={Carrie J. Brown and Bernd Blossey and John C. Maerz and Steve J. Joule},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
Introductions of non-native predators and competitors appear to contribute to worldwide amphibian declines; however, potential negative impacts of invasive plants on habitat quality and amphibian populations have not been examined. Loss of diversity and alterations in ecosystem function associated with plant invasions may disrupt food webs, potentially leading to further declines of already threatened amphibian populations. We used a combination of small bins, mesocosms, and field experiments… CONTINUE READING
