Magnitude and timing of resource pulses interact to affect plant invasion

Zhibin Tao, Changchao Shen, Wenchao Qin, Yinfeng Gui, Evan Siemann, Yi Wang & Wei Huang
Human activities can cause resource fluctuations through reducing uptake by the resident vegetation (e.g., disturbance) or through changing external resource supply (e.g., fertilization). Resource fluctuations often occur as pulses which are low frequency, large magnitude and short duration, and now are recognized as an important driver of plant invasions. However, resource pulses often vary dramatically in a number of attributes, yet how these attributes mediate the impacts of resource pulses on plant invasions remains unclear....
