Interactive effects of shading and disturbance on plant invasion in an arid shrubland: assembly processes and CSR-strategies

Víctor Escobedo, Rodrigo Rios & Ernesto Gianoli
Disturbance by small mammals and shrub canopies are ecological factors typical of arid ecosystems that may influence plant invasion through environmental and community changes. Whereas disturbance beneath shrub canopies may promote invasion by removing dominant species, disturbance in open areas may hinder plant invasion by increasing environmental harshness. However, we are unaware of studies explicitly addressing the interactive effects of disturbance by mammals and shading by shrubs on community assembly processes to understand plant invasion....
