      While some plants have modified seed structures to facilitate dispersal, many lack such specialised adaptations, making their mode of dispersal unclear. This can be particularly problematic for predicting shifts in species ...
    • Does tallgrass prairie restoration enhance the invasion resistance of post-agricultural lands? 

      Foster, Bryan L.; Houseman, Gregory R.; Hall, David R.; Hinman, Sarah E. (Springer International Publishing AG, 2015-12)
      There is building interest in the use of ecological restoration to enhance the biotic invasion resistance of disturbed lands. However, few studies have rigorously examined the effect of community restoration on biotic ...
