Activated carbon decreases invasive plant growth by mediating plant–microbe interactions

Nicole E. Nolan, Andrew Kulmatiski, Karen H. Beard and Jeanette M. Norton.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online January 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Plant Sciences and Forestry; Plant Pathology and Diseases; Ecology and Conservation; Plant-Microbe Interactions. 6808 words.

There is growing appreciation for the idea that plant–soil interactions (e.g. allelopathy and plant–microbe feedbacks) may explain the success of some non-native plants. Where this is the...
