Author(s): G. N. Ervin and R. G. Wetzel
Journal: American Journal of Botany
Article Topic(s): Allelopathy
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Juncus effusus (Common rush),
AbstractEvaluates 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.
