We compared the effects of invasion by introduced Picea sitchensis and native Pinus sylvestris on threatened coastal Calluna-heathlands in western Norway. Our study showed that conifer invasion induces considerable and rapid changes in heathland vegetation, and that effects were stronger under the introduced conifer. To facilitate restoration, the spread of P. sitchensis into these landscapes should be controlled.
