Marion Bottollier-Curtet, Anne-Marie Planty-Tabacchi and Eric Tabacchi Competition between young exotic invasive and native dominant plant species: implications for invasions within riparian areas Journal of Vegetation Science
Mean competition effect (± 95 %-bootstrap confidence interval) on the individual biomass according the origin of the species. Considering five exotic invasive and five native dominant plant species, we found that the exotics produced more biomass than the natives in 73 % of the selected species pairs. The exotic species had higher competitiveness than the natives, mainly related to the high competitiveness of I. glandulifera. The two species which displayed the lowest production and competitive abilities were natives.
