Invasive effect of Ageratina adenophora on biological community structure and its diversity.

Abstract

Based on collected data, the effect of weed Ageratina adenophora invasion on community structure and species diversity was analyzed. The research was conducted on biological invasion and community structure and function, community diversity, ecological process, as well as correlations among them. It was a ecological diversity question that considered many factors and their mutual influence and interaction. There were many factors influencing the structure and function of the community in the process of invasion of Ageratina adenophora. Effect of invasion on community was reflected through dynamic changes of community diversity, structure and function.
