How do abiotic and biotic factors influence range expansion of closely related native and non-native Eugenia shrub species?
Storm surges overcome the species’ naturally slow migration.
The highest increases in spread rates occur when variation in dispersal positively co-varies with fecundity.
Ramoneda et al. propose specific experimental approaches to utilize the wild ancestors of crops to determine whether crop domestication compromised the benefits derived from root microbial symbioses or not.
The smaller a plant’s genome, the more likely it is to be invasive? Or so it was thought but newer techniques are casting some doubt on the idea.
