Invader Impact on Soil Ecosystems – What Every Restoration Practitioner Should Know
Plant invasions cause dramatic shifts in plant communities and ecosystem processes. While these changes are obvious aboveground, less is known about changes belowground. Focusing on the most significant invaders in our area, this seminar will highlight how spotted knapweed, leafy spurge, cheatgrass and sulfur cinquefoil alter soil microbial communities and nutrient cycles, and what the consequences of these shifts might be for restoration.
