Leaf litter variation influences invasion dynamics in the invasive wetland grass Phalaris arundinacea

Abstract

High litter mass is hypothesized to produce an invader-directed invasion by changing ecosystem properties such as nutrient cycling rates and light availability. An invasive plant species that stimulates litter accumulation may induce a positive feedback when it benefits from high litter conditions. Phalaris arundinacea is an invasive wetland grass that may… (More)
