Besides competition for abiotic resources, an increasing number of studies show evidence of the effects of invasive species on the pollination success and reproductive output of indigenous species. We studied the effect of the invasive Impatiens glandulifera Royle on the process of reproduction in the indigenous Lythrum salicaria L. and Alisma plantago-aquatica L. and the naturalized Oenothera biennis L. The latter three species (target species) were transplanted into pots and placed in invaded… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Distance-dependent effects of invasive Lupinus polyphyllus on pollination and reproductive success of two native herbs
TLDR
The results indicate that L. polyphyllus facilitates pollination of the native plants, and that this occurs at a very local spatial scale as effects dropped off already at a distance of 5 m. Expand
The invasive aquatic plant Ludwigia grandiflora affects pollinator visitants to a native plant at high abundances
TLDR
The plant-pollinator interactions for Ludwigia grandiflora, a highly invasive aquatic weed in Europe, were studied and there was no evidence of negative impact of L. grandIFlora on pollination of a native plant. Expand
An Invasive Plant Species Decreases Native Plant Reproductive Success
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that rhizomatous invasive species such as Securigera varia can have direct and indirect impacts on the reproductive success of native species. Expand
Presence of an invasive plant species alters pollinator visitation to a native
TLDR
It is found that interspecific pollinator movements were overrepresented at uninvaded sites and underrepresented at invaded sites, suggesting that heterospecific pollen deposition could be a significant impediment to pollinator-mediated reproduction for both species in the early stages of an invasion. Expand
Invasive Scotch broom (Cytisus scoparius, Fabaceae) and the pollination success of three Garry oak-associated plant species
TLDR
Investigating the effect of the invader Scotch broom on the visitation, pollen deposition, and female reproductive output of three co-flowering species of the critically endangered Garry oak grassland ecosystem on the Saanich peninsula of Vancouver Island provides evidence that the spread of Scotch broom is not due to the reduction of pollination success of natives nor is C. scoparius likely to be facilitating the pollination of other exotics in Garry oak ecosystem remnants. Expand
Pollinator-mediated interactions between native plants and the invasive alien Himalayan balsam
TLDR
The direction and magnitude of pollinator-mediated effects varied with I. glandulifera abundance, spatial scale, and the way in which impact was assessed, which could be useful for identifying and protecting potentially vulnerable native species. Expand
The presence of the invasive plant Solanum elaeagnifolium deters honeybees and increases pollen limitation in the native co-flowering species Glaucium flavum
TLDR
It is shown that the presence of the invasive significantly enhanced pollen limitation, although the overall visitation rates were not reduced and that this increase is due to a reduction in honeybee visitation in the presenceof the invasive resulting in reduced pollination. Expand
The effect of alien species on plant-pollinator network structure across a gradient of plant species invasion
TLDR
Alien species are well integrated into native coastal plant-pollinator networks which may be facilitated by high levels of floral trait similarity and pollinator use overlap, and may play a similar role than that of natives in the structure and stability of native plant and pollinators communities in the studied coastal sand dune ecosystem. Expand
Direct interactions between invasive plants and native pollinators: evidence, impacts and approaches
TLDR
A better understanding of relevant individual-level traits is recommended to predict direct interactions between invasive plants and native pollinators and to explain community-level impacts. Expand
An invasive plant alters pollinator-mediated phenotypic selection on a native congener.
TLDR
Invasive plants have the potential to alter phenotypic selection on floral traits in native plant populations and if native plants can evolve in response to this altered selection pressure, the evolution of floral traits may play an important role in permitting long-term coexistence of native and invasive plants.

Effect of Carpobrotus spp. on the pollination success of native plant species of the Balearic Islands
TLDR
The results indicate that the role of the invasive Carpobrotus in promoting or constraining the natural pollination dynamics is likely to have species specific effects on the native flora. Expand
The presence of a showy invasive plant disrupts pollinator service and reproductive output in native alpine species only at high densities
TLDR
The results suggest that the effects of the presence of alien invasive plant species with attractive flowers vary with their density, demonstrating the need to experimentally test for the potential impacts of introduced species at different densities before prematurely coming to conclusions regarding their assumed negative or positive effects in native ecosystems. Expand
Little evidence for negative effects of an invasive alien plant on pollinator services
TLDR
Overall there is little evidence for negative effects of the invasive species on pollination of neighbouring plants, and flower visitation even increases close to the invaded patches, and the functional role of the invader and suitable control strategies need further clarification. Expand
Effects of an exotic plant and habitat disturbance on pollinator visitation and reproduction in a boreal forest herb.
TLDR
It is shown that seed production may be more robust than pollinator visitation to exotic invasion, irrespective of habitat disturbance history, and the exotic had no effect on female reproductive success of the native species in any habitat. Expand
Insect visitation and pollen deposition in an invaded prairie plant community
TLDR
The results emphasize the temporal variability in plant–pollinator relations and the added complexity imposed by an invasive species that will always make prediction of effects difficult, and suggest the likelihood of negative effects. Expand
Contrasting effects of invasive plants in plant–pollinator networks
TLDR
Comparisons of uninvaded and invaded ecological communities indicate that the introduction of a new species to a community can have important consequences for the structure of the plant–pollinator network. Expand
Ecological and genetic effects on demographic processes: pollination, clonality and seed production in Dithyrea maritima
TLDR
A genetic factor explains spatial variation in seed set on San Nicolas Island, and a second possible limitation on seed set is low diversity of genets within subpopulations, which could lead to scarcity of compatible mates. Expand
Shading by invasive shrub reduces seed production and pollinator services in a native herb
TLDR
The mechanism of impact of L. maackii on G. maculatum reproduction was increased understory shade, refuting the hypothesis of competition for pollinators and indicating pollinator-mediated impacts of invasive plants are not limited to periods of co-flowering or pollinator sharing between potential competitors.

Combined effects of Impatiens glandulifera invasion and landscape structure on native plant pollination
TLDR
It is concluded that both, plant invasions and landscape structure have important effects on the plant–pollinator community studied, but that they operate at different stages of the flowering season. Expand
