DescriptionThis 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.
