Chinese tallow (Sapium sebiferum), a naturalized exotic from eastern Asia, forms very dense monotypic stands and has become a serious competitor to native species in stream swamps along the United States Gulf coast. In this experiment, we examined the competitive relationships among seedlings of baldcypress (Taxodium distichum), water tupelo (Nyssa aquatica), and Chinese tallow in full sun environments under flooded and drained conditions for 2 years.
