(p.356) 15 Forest Invasions
The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America

James O. Luken

Oxford University Press

This chapter evaluates forest invasion when certain criticisms of invasion ecology are given and accepted. Although this may seem daunting, the fact remains that invasion research tells us much about population, community, and ecosystem ecology of forests even when focused solely on nonindigenous species. The discussions cover the terms of invasion ecology; colonizers and invaders of forests; invasion and the forest environment; potential interactions between invaders and associated species; invasion and forest development; and whether nonindigenous forest species should be managed.

Keywords:   forest invasion, invasion ecology, forest invaders, forest development, nonindigenous species
