Understanding the Functional Strategies of Invasive Plants Using Large-Scale Datasets
invasive species, large-scale datasets
Why are invaders stronger than their native counterparts, has been always a central question in invasion ecology. With increasing numbers of public datasets and international col-laborations, we are now able to revisit some classic hypothe-ses and formulate new ones concerning the functional strat-egies of invasive plants. Dr. Liao will talk about the general functional strategies that facilitate plant invasion success basing on her recent works that incorporated global- and continental-scale datasets. She will also demonstrate how a better understanding of the functional aspect of plant inva-sion may benefit control and management of invasive plants, and how citizens and scientists can work together to accelerate the development of large-scale datasets.
