Focuses on a research on reed canarygrass which showed how environmental conditions and plant traits might interact to allow some invaders to displace nearly all the native species in some disturbed wetlands. Information on reed canarygrass; Disturbance that simultaneously increases community invasibility and invader aggressiveness; Suggestions for managing reed canarygrass invasion.
