What controls the population dynamics of the invasive thistle Carduus nutans in its native range?



What controls the population dynamics of the invasive thistle Carduus nutans in its native range?



Journal of Applied Ecology 43(5): 877-886



The invasive thistle Carduus nutans causes major economic losses in the Americas, Australia and New Zealand. For the first time, we have modelled its population dynamics in its native range, Eurasia, where it rarely reaches problematic densities, in order to identify ways to improve management strategies for this weed in the invaded range.
