Endophytic fungal communities of Bromus tectorum: Mutualisms, community assemblages and implications for invasion

Publications Posted on: September 30, 2011
Exotic plant invasions are of serious economic, social and ecological concern worldwide. Although many promising hypotheses have been posited in attempt to explain the mechanism(s) by which plant invaders are successful, there is no single explanation for all invasions and often no single explanation for the success of an individual species.
