Month: Jun

Journal: American Journal of Botany
Volume: 87
Issue: 6

Evaluates allelopathic effects of Juncus effusus on growth of itself and on Scirpus cyperinus. Extracts of Juncus effusus tissues did not reduce growth of S. cyperinus but did reduce growth of Juncus effusus itself. Results indicate that adult plants of Juncus effusus can reduce growth of its own seedlings.
