Resilience of Native Plant Community Following Manual Control of Invasive Cinchona pubescens in Galápagos

  title={Resilience of Native Plant Community Following Manual Control of Invasive Cinchona pubescens in Gal{\'a}pagos},
  author={Heinke J{\"a}ger and Ingo Kowarik},
As invasive plant species are a major driver of change on oceanic islands, their control is an important challenge for restoration ecology. The post-control recovery of native vegetation is crucial for the treatments to be considered successful, but few studies have evaluated the effects of control measures on both target and non-target species. To investigate the efficiency of manual control of Cinchona pubescens and its impacts on the sub-tropical highland vegetation of Santa Cruz Island, Gal… CONTINUE READING
