Plant invasions in cold climates

A plant invasion experiment in subantarctic and subarctic mountain regions reveals that disturbance may be a more significant determinant of plant invader success in cold climates, compared with temperature, nutrient concentrations, and the number of invasive seeds, suggesting that plant invasions may rapidly increase in cold climate ecosystems in response to human-mediated disturbance and climate change. - Read at
