Relationship Between the Invasive Eurasian Milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum L.) and Macrophyte Diversity Across Spatial Scales

Simon Gräfe
The effect of the invasive macrophyte Myriophyllum spicatum L. on native macrophyte diversity was studied across 21 lakes at small (1 quadrat) and large (18 quadrats) scales and in mesocosms. No relationship was observed between M. spicatum and native richness at either spatial scale, or native evenness at small scales; however, at large scales native evenness was negatively correlated with the cover of M. spicatum in lakes. This suggests that M. spicatum can grow in...
