Plant Invasions Associated with Change in Root-Zone Microbial Community Structure and Diversity

Abstract

The importance of plant-microbe associations for the invasion of plant species have not been often tested under field conditions. The research sought to determine patterns of change in microbial communities associated with the establishment of invasive plants with different taxonomic and phenetic traits. Three independent locations in Virginia, USA were… (More)
