Description

Chapter 13 (Page no: 177)

Molecular ecology: applications for invasive plants.

This chapter focuses on the molecular methods and techniques used in invasive plant ecology and determination of origins and likely spread of invasive species. The importance of the use of molecular approaches in the study and management of invasive plants, such as Hypericum canariense in the Canary Islands and Schinus terebinthifolius in Florida, is also discussed.
