- ... As global changes reshuffle plant communities, invasive plants may benefit. Unfortunately, potential interactions among global changes and limited mechanistic understanding make it difficult to predict invasions in future environments. Here we show that elevated CO2 can strongly promote invasion by increasing availability of two resources, carbon (C) and water, both with and without warming. Four ...
