Abstract

Researches the effects of salinity on the growth of different populations of Solidago sempervirens from coastal Massachusetts to west-central New York. Solidago sempervirens has been expanding its range from coastal environments into inland disturbed areas like roads and salt mines. This study indicates decreased growth in response to increased salinity. The authors conclude that S. sempervirens may establish in areas of higher salinity due to a greater tolerance of salinity than species with which it may otherwise compete.
