Towards management of invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2016-08-04)
Ectomycorrhizal fungi are increasingly recognized as invasive species. Invasive ectomycorrhizal fungi can be toxic to humans, may compete with native, edible or otherwise valuable fungi, facilitate the co-invasion of trees, ...
Loss of functional diversity and network modularity in introduced plant–fungal symbioses
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2017-01-01)
The introduction of alien plants into a new range can result in the loss of co-evolved symbiotic organisms, such as mycorrhizal fungi, that are essential for normal plant physiological functions. Prior studies of mycorrhizal ...
Mycorrhizal co-invasion and novel interactions depend on neighborhood context
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the Ecological Society of America, 2015-09)
© 2015 by the Ecological Society of America. Biological invasions are a rapidly increasing driver of global change, yet fundamental gaps remain in our understanding of the factors determining the success or extent of ...
Evolutionary dynamics of tree invasions: Complementing the unified framework for biological invasions
(Oxford University Press on behalf of Annals of Botany Company, 2017-01)
Evolutionary processes greatly impact the outcomes of biological invasions. An extensive body of research suggests that invasive populations often undergo phenotypic and ecological divergence from their native sources. ...
Belowground legacies of Pinus contorta invasion and removal result in multiple mechanisms of invasional meltdown
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2014)
Plant invasions can change soil biota and nutrients in ways that drive subsequent plant communities, particularly when co-invading with belowground mutualists such as ectomycorrhizal fungi. These effects can persist following ...
