ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that hybridization occurs between mesquite species (Prosopis laevigata (Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.) Johnst. and Prosopis glandulosa var. torreyana (L. Benson) Johnst.) in the highlands of San Luis Potosi. We found no geographic, ecological, phenological, pollination, chromosomal or compatibility barriers to interspecific hybridization. Morphological evidence of natural hybridization was observed, and by artificial crosses hybrids were obtained.

    Most legislation pertaining to non-native organisms is implicitly focussed at the individual species level. However, in some cases interspecific hybrids can be more invasive than any of the parent species. This is problematic for policy makers, and for horticulturists developing or trading in...

    In invasion ecology, potential impacts of aliens on native flora are still under debate. Our aim was to determine the pollinator mediated effects of both proximity and abundance of an alien species on the reproductive success of natives. We chose the highly invasive Impatiens glandulifera and...

    The majority of plant species rely, at least partly, on animals for pollination. Our knowledge on whether pollinator visitation differs between native and alien plant species, and between invasive and non-invasive alien species is still limited. Additionally, because numerous invasive plant...
