AbstractExamines the characteristics of Solidago canadensis that contributes to its rapid colonization of urban environments. While seed dispersal, germination, and seed banking characteristics contribute to the species' colonization, vegetation reproduction through clonal growth seems to be more of a key factor in the species' urban distribution.
