The North American historic phytogeographic distribution of mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) and Japanese knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum), two invasive perennial species introduced from Eurasia and East Asia respectively, was recreated using herbarium records. The putative initial introduction of these two species differs by c.a. 400 years, but their patterns of geographic distribution, introduction pathways, and local dispersal pathways are similar. Both species showed the expected logistic growth… Expand

The biology of invasive alien plants in Canada. 5. Polygonum cuspidatum Sieb. & Zucc. [=Fallopia japonica (Houtt.) Ronse Decr.].
TLDR
The phytogeographic distribution of P. cuspidatum in North America suggests a large number of intentional introductions via ornamental plantings from 1870 to 2000, followed by secondary spread from these foci, and the primary means of local and regional range expansion is human-mediated transport of rhizome-infested soil.

Knotweed (Fallopia spp.) Invasion of North America Utilizes Hybridization, Epigenetics, Seed Dispersal (Unexpectedly), and an Arsenal of Physiological Tactics
TLDR
It is observed that knotweed species clearly possess 8 of the 12 ideal weed characteristics, with Bohemian knotweed likely exhibiting still more because of prolific seed production, and only a thoroughly researched, well-informed approach to knotweed management across North America can be successful. Expand
Revealing Historic Invasion Patterns and Potential Invasion Sites for Two Non-Native Plant Species
TLDR
Despite differences in initial introduction loci and pathways, Japanese knotweed and mugwort demonstrate similar historic patterns of spread and show declining rates of regional expansion, suggesting these perennials are reaching the limits of large-scale expansion. Expand
INFERRING INTRODUCTION HISTORY AND SPREAD OF FALCARIA VULGARIS BERNH. (APIACEAE) IN THE UNITED STATES BASED ON HERBARIUM RECORDS
Herbarium records were studied to infer the introduction history and spread of the exotic Eurasian sickleweed (Falcaria vulgaris Bernh.) in the United States. The spread of the plant wasExpand
Efficacy and host specificity compared between two populations of the psyllid Aphalara itadori, candidates for biological control of invasive knotweeds in North America
TLDR
It is concluded that A. itadori would be both effective and low risk as a biological control agent for invasive knotweeds and that both the Kyushu and Hokkaido populations may be needed to effectively control the entire knotweed species complex. Expand
Observations of extended lag phase of nonnative invasive Frangula alnus (Rhamnaceae) may be spatial-scale dependent1
TLDR
Examining the spread of this species at the continental scale, it appears to have experienced an extended lag phase early in its invasion history, but has steadily increased in area of occupancy since ca. Expand
Sexual reproduction of Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica s.l.) at its northern distribution limit: new evidence of the effect of climate warming on an invasive species.
TLDR
The effect of climate change is already palpable on the phenology of invasive plant species at their northern distribution limit, and Bohemian knotweed, which until recently was rare in Quebec, could rapidly spread in the near future with the help of an additional diaspore type (seeds). Expand
Spatiotemporal Analysis of Three Common Wetland Invasive Plant Species Using Herbarium Specimens and Geographic Information Systems
TLDR
The use of two different methods and the subsequent comparison of results show the importance of sampling bias correction, scale selection, and adequate sample sizes for spatiotemporal analyses of plant distributions using herbarium records. Expand
Reconstructing the historical spread of non-native plants in the North American West from herbarium specimens
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the historical spread patterns of 10 poorly investigated exotic plant species can be reconstructed from herbarium records, using methods to account for herbaria collection bias, and periods of invasiveness are revealed for the first time in the research area. Expand
Using the nuclear LEAFY gene to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships among invasive knotweed (Reynoutria, Polygonaceae) populations
Abstract Knotweed species in the genus Reynoutria are native to eastern Asia but have become noxious weeds in Europe and North America. In the United States, invasive populations of Japanese knotweedExpand

  • L. Salo
  • Biology
  • Biological Invasions
  • 2004
TLDR
The results challenge the most frequently cited sources describing the early history of this grass and suggest three possible modes for early introductions: the California Gold Rush and Central Valley wheat, southern California shipping, and northern California sheep. Expand
The distribution and history in the British Isles of some alien species of Polygonum and Reynoutria
An account is given of the escape from garden cultivation of four members of the Polygonaceae introduced from Eastern Asia: Reynoutriajaponica Houtt., including the dwarfvar. compacta (Hooker fil.)Expand
The dynamics of plant invasions: a case study of three exotic goldenrod species (Solidago L.) in Europe
TLDR
The data suggest that S. altissima and S. gigantea will successfully spread further, leading to an increase in abundance and area, while S. graminifolia seems to spread slowly. Expand
Invasion history of Oenothera congeners in Europe: a comparative study of spreading rates in the last 200 years
TLDR
In Europe, there are two distinct groups of species of North and South American origin, respectively, whose invasion is determined by climatic conditions, namely temperature and precipitation, and pattern of invasion of particular taxa corresponds well to the Climatic conditions in the regions of their natural distribution.

Invasion of Bromus tectorum L. into Western North America: An ecological chronicle
Abstract Bromus tectorum L., the most ubiquitous alien in steppe vegetation in the intermountain West of North America, entered British Columbia, Washington, and Utah ca. 1889–1894. By ca. 1928 theExpand

  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 2002
TLDR
Results indicate that an introduction of a non-native strain of Phragmites has occurred, and the introduced type has displaced native types as well as expanded to regions previously not known to have PhragMites. Expand
The distribution in bankside habitats of three alien invasive plants in the U.K. in relation to the development of control strategies
The national distribution of Fallopia japonica (Japanese Knotweed), Heracleum mantegazzianum (Giant Hogweed) and Impatiens glandulifera (Himalayan Balsam) in bankside habitats is given for 1994-96 inExpand
The expansion history of a sexual and asexual species of Cortaderia in California, USA
TLDR
The expansion histories of two South American species of Cortaderia, similar in morphology but differing profoundly in their breeding systems, were compared in California, USA, finding that sexual C.selloana has expanded spatially at twice the rate of the asexual C.jubata. Expand
Differences in invasibility of two contrasting habitats and invasiveness of two mugwort Artemisia vulgaris populations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that variation exists in habitat invasibility, and that intraspecific variation in growth patterns occurs in mugwort, and the interaction between habitat traits and species characteristics was found to be important when determining invasion success. Expand
Distribution of Exotic Plants along Roads in a Peninsular Nature Reserve
TLDR
The results add support to the idea that roads act as disturbances that promote invasive species, but not to the concept that roads acts as corridors for the flow of invasive propagules into new landscapes. Expand
