    Description

    This paper links key plant invasive traits with key landscape traits to define strategic management for five common forest invaders, using empirical data of Microstegium vimineum dispersal into forests as a preliminary model. Microstegium vimineum exhibits an Allee effect that may allow management to focus on treating its source corridor populations at local scales. Forest interior populations without a constant seed source from the corridor populations could potentially go extinct on their own. In contrast, species with long-distance dispersal are likely best managed at a landscape scale, focusing on new establishment sites rather than on removal of source corridor populations.
