1. Challenging the view that invasive non-native plants are not a significant threat to the floristic diversity of Great Britain.

  2. Biogeography of a plant invasion: plant-herbivore interactions.

    Ecology 96(4):1115 (2015) PMID 26230031

    Theory predicts that native plant species should exhibit latitudinal gradients in the strength of their interactions with herbivores. We hypothesize that if an invasive plant species exhibits a different latitudinal gradient in response to herbivores (e.g., a nonparallel gradient), it can create...
  3. The hidden side of plant invasions: the role of genome size.

    New Phytologist 205(3):994 (2015) PMID 25323486

    The ecological role of genome size in plant biology, biogeography, and morphology has garnered increasing attention as the methods and technology associated with measuring cytological characteristics have become more reliable and accessible. However, how plant genome size influences plant invasi...

  8. Invasion of Old World Phragmites australis in the New World: precipitation and temperature patterns combined with human influences redesign the invasive niche.

    Global Change Biology 19(11):3406 (2013) PMID 23765641

    After its introduction into North America, Euro-Asian Phragmites australis became an aggressive invasive wetland grass along the Atlantic coast of North America. Its distribution range has since expanded to the middle, south and southwest of North America, where invasive P. australis has replace...

  10. Tidal flushing restores the physiological condition of fish residing in degraded salt marshes.

    PLoS ONE 7(9):e46161 (2012) PMID 23029423 PMCID PMC3459893

    Roads, bridges, and dikes constructed across salt marshes can restrict tidal flow, degrade habitat quality for nekton, and facilitate invasion by non-native plants including Phragmites australis. Introduced P. australis contributes to marsh accretion and eliminates marsh surface pools thereby ad...

  12. Assessment of net ecosystem services of plastic greenhouse vegetable cultivation in China

    Ecological Economics 70(4):740 (2011)

    Plastic greenhouse vegetable cultivation is rapidly expanding in China and elsewhere worldwide. In order to comprehensively understand the impacts of plastic greenhouse vegetable cultivation on agricultural ecosystem services and dis-services, we developed an assessment framework for the ne...
  13. Options for national parks and reserves for adapting to climate change.

    Environmental Management 44(6):1033 (2009) PMID 19449058 PMCID PMC2791479

    Past and present climate has shaped the valued ecosystems currently protected in parks and reserves, but future climate change will redefine these conditions. Continued conservation as climate changes will require thinking differently about resource management than we have in the past; we presen...

  15. Phenotypic plasticity of leaf shape along a temperature gradient in Acer rubrum.

    PLoS ONE 4(10):e7653 (2009) PMID 19893620 PMCID PMC2764093

    Both phenotypic plasticity and genetic determination can be important for understanding how plants respond to environmental change. However, little is known about the plastic response of leaf teeth and leaf dissection to temperature. This gap is critical because these leaf traits are commonly us...

    Aquatic Botany 64(3):261 (1999)

    Phragmites expansion into tidal wetlands of North America is most extensive along the northern and middle Atlantic coasts, but over 80% of the US coastal wetland area occurs along the Gulf of Mexico and southern Atlantic coasts and may be susceptible to ongoing expansion. Rapid sprea...
