Abstract

Examines the possibility of controlling an invasive species by overseeding with a competitive native species, Gaillardia pulchella. The highest seeding rate reduced aboveground productivity of the invasive by 72% and significantly reduced seed set of the invasive. This method has several advantages over conventional control methods.
