Meta-analyses, Invasive plants and phenotypic Plasticity


Currently working on the stats of my last year’s greenhouse expt on plasticity of native and invasive maples. Check this two nice recent papers on the topic:

– Davidson, Jennions & Nicotra, 2011. Do invasive species show higher phenotypic plasticity than native species and, if so, is it adaptive? A meta-analysis. Ecology Letters 14

– Palacio-Lopez & Gianoli, 2011. Invasive plants do not display greater phenotypic plasticity than their native or non-invasive counterparts: a meta-analysis . Oikos 120
