Realization from: 2011
Realization to: 2015
Summary: Using both comparative and experimental approach in the field, the project aims at i) estimating the dominant species´ community-level impacts in its native versus invaded ranges; ii) testing the effect of the invasion´s direction on its impact (from Europe to North America versus from North America to Europe); iii) the development of communities following the dominant species´ removal in its native versus invaded ranges and iv) the dominant species´impact on the diversity and composition of symbiotic fungal communities in the native versus invaded ranges.
