Effects of density on above and below ground biomass of the native alpine grass Poa fawcettiae and the environmental weed Achillea millefolium

Abstract

Investigates the competition between Poa fawcettiae, which is native to the Australian Alps, and Achillea millefolium, which is invasive in that region. Achillea millefolium produced four times as much biomass as P. fawcettiae; however, A. millefolium root and shoot biomass declined in high density monocultures. The competitive ability of A. millefolium is attributed to root competition.
