Resource competition in plant invasions: emerging patterns and research needs

  title={Resource competition in plant invasions: emerging patterns and research needs},
  author={Margherita Gioria and Bruce A. Osborne},
  booktitle={Front. Plant Sci.},
Invasions by alien plants provide a unique opportunity to examine competitive interactions among plants. While resource competition has long been regarded as a major mechanism responsible for successful invasions, given a well-known capacity for many invaders to become dominant and reduce plant diversity in the invaded communities, few studies have measured resource competition directly or have assessed its importance relative to that of other mechanisms, at different stages of an invasion… CONTINUE READING
