AbstractCompares genetic diversity of the native Lonicera sempervirens and the invasive L. japonica in the southeastern United States. Lonicera sempervirens had higher levels of genetic diversity than L. japonica, although both species exhibited high levels of diversity. The article concludes that genetic diversity may be less important than life history traits in determining invasibility of L. japonica.
