From the basement to the rooftop: impact of the invasive A. dealbata Link over different ecosystems.


Biological invasions are a major threat to ecosystem stability, covering a broad range of aspects, from soil nutrients to diversity of plant species. This multidisciplinary assay found differences in edaphic parameters together with flora (diversity, richness and total plant cover) and microflora changes (altered enzymatic activities) in soils under A. dealbata invasion for different native ecosystems.
