The southern Appalachian forests have long been under multiple environmental threats, including periodic fires, insect outbreaks, and more recently, increased invasion by exotic invasive plants. Past studies suggested these multiple disturbances interact to shape the species-rich forest landscape, and hypothesized that the changed fire regimes, interacting with increasing landscape fragmentation, may insert complex influences on patterns and processes of the invasion.
