Cover for Herbivorous arthropods on <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Heracleum mantegazzianum</i> in its native and invaded distribution range.

This chapter presents an analysis of the host specificity of herbivorous insects and tests the hypothesis that proportionally more specialist herbivores are found in the native range of Heracleum mantegazzianum, Western Greater Caucasus. Based on field surveys on H. mantegazzianum carried out in...

Cover for Seed ecology of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Heracleum mantegazzianum</i> and <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">H. sosnowskyi</i>, two invasive species with different distributions in Europe.

This chapter compares the germination ecology of Heracleum mantegazzianum and Heracleum sosnowskyi. In particular, the reproductive traits related to seed ecology of these two species are compared to determine whether the differences can explain their varying success as invaders. Differences in...
