Drowned, buried and carried away: Effects of plant traits on the distribution of native and alien species in riparian ecosystems

Catford, Jane; Jansson, Roland

Description

Riparian vegetation is exposed to stress from inundation and hydraulic disturbance, and is often rich in native and alien plant species. We describe 35 traits that enable plants to cope with riparian conditions. These include traits for tolerating or avoiding anoxia and enabling underwater photosynthesis, traits that confer resistance and resilience to hydraulic disturbance, and attributes that facilitate dispersal, such as floating propagules. This diversity of life-history strategies...[Show more]
