L.M. Smith Extended leaf phenology in deciduous forest invaders: mechanisms of impact on native communities Journal of Vegetation Science 24
Many plant invaders of Eastern deciduous forests exhibit extended leaf phenology compared to natives. Beyond providing invaders an advantage in resource competition, extended leaf phenology may have diverse community-level effects by changing interactions between plants and their enemies, mutualists, and competitors. Investigating the role of leaf phenology in invasion will inform our understanding of seasonality in shaping species interactions.
