- ... Monoecious and dioecious biotypes of Hydrilla verticillata were introduced from Asia into the United States (U.S.). Although biological control agent development has been ongoing for many years to combat this invasive aquatic weed, the focus has now shifted towards the monoecious biotype because of apparent incompatibilities between previously introduced agents and this lineage. To facilitate coll ...

- ... Projections of climate change impacts over the coming decades suggest that rising sea level will flood coastal wetlands. We studied the impacts of three intensities of flooding on litter decomposition in the native Cyperus malaccensis, and the invasives Spartina alterniflora and Phragmites australis in Shanyutan wetland (Minjiang River estuary, China). Invasive species had larger C, N and P stocks ...
