Evidence of tissue-specific allelopathic activity in Euthamia graminifolia and Solidago canadensis (Asteraceae)

Article Topic(s): Allelopathy, Competition
Research Setting(s): Laboratory
Species Referenced: Solidago canadensis (Canada goldenrod),
AbstractExamines leaf and root tissue of Solidago canadensis for allelopathic activity. Leaf extracts inhibited seed germination and growth of lettuce and radish seeds. Root extracts inhibited growth of lettuce and radish but did not affect seed germination. Allelopathy in this species may inhibit the growth and survival of competing species.
