Article Topic(s): Community level survey, Disturbance, Succession
Research Setting(s): Old field
Species Referenced: Solidago canadensis (Canada goldenrod),
AbstractResearches the effects of disturbance and successional age on the soil seed bank at a botanical garden in Germany. Solidago canadensis, which is not native to Germany, was the most abundant species in the seed bank. Evidence that Solidago canadensis can form persistent seed banks may be useful information to the species' establishment and management.
