AbstractAssesses whether light limitation, nutrient limitation, or allelopathy by the invasive Fallopia x bohemica limits growth and establishment of two native species including Eupatorium perfoliatum. Increasing light and nutrients did not affect growth of E. perfoliatum but activated carbon increased E. perfoliatum growth in the short-term.
