Hurricane disturbance accelerates invasion by the alien tree Pittosporum undulatum in Jamaican montane rain forests



Hurricane disturbance accelerates invasion by the alien tree Pittosporum undulatum in Jamaican montane rain forests



Journal of Vegetation Science 16(6): 675-684



Questions: Do past disturbance, soil nutrients, or species diversity predict the invasion success of the alien tree Pittosporum undulatum in an island montane rain forest? What are the consequences of its invasion for forest composition and species diversity? Location: Blue Mountains, Jamaica. Methods: Censuses of trees >=3 cm DBH in permanent plots in four sites within ca. 7 ha; 1974-2004 (intensive sites) and in 16 plots within 250 ha; 1990-2004 (extensive plots).
