Understanding competition in invasive Phragmites helps inform estuarine management

The Hughes Lab conducted field surveys and glasshouse experiments to investigate phenotypic variation within the invasive common reed, Phragmites australis, at four sites along the east coast of North America. Research on intraspecific variation of this invader will improve impact assessments and guide salt marsh management in estuarine ecosystems invaded by P. australis.
