The invasion risk in the Pacific Northwest of two closely related grass species in the Genus Cortaderia
The distribution of Cortaderia selloana and Cortaderia jubata in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) has not been examined on a regional scale although geospatial information exists. Cortaderia selloana continues to be sold in nurseries across Oregon and Washington and both species are used as landscape plantings. With invasive ...
Ecophysiology as a tool for evaluating invasive-plant based bioenergies: physiological and ecological case-studies of Arundo donax and Elaeagnus angustifolia
In recent years, environmental and social pressures have fostered the development of biomass based energies. Development of `ideal' biomass feedstocks has led to characterizations of physiological traits that are similar to many of the physiological traits that typify number of invasive grasses. This has led to controversy ...
