- Invasive Plants Field and Reference Guide: An Ecological Perspective of Plant Invaders of Forests and Woodlands
- Description: There are many field guides available about invasive plants and their identification. The purpose of this particular field guide is to give a scientific synthesis of what is known about the behavior of such species in managed, disturbed, and pristine forested systems in addition to key information for accurate identification.

- Evidence for allelopathic interference of Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) to loblolly and shortleaf pine regeneration
- Description: This research paper examines the allelopathic interference of Japanese honeysuckle on economically attractive loblolly and shortleaf pine. Chemical analysis confirms the presence of five compounds in Japanese honeysuckle leaf tissue that are possible allelochemicals. Experimental evidence suggests that Japanese honeysuckle leaf litter in the soil may exert allelopathic effects on loblolly and shortleaf pine seedlings, resulting in reduced growth and chlorosis.

- Monitoring Nonnative Plant Invasions Over Fifty Years in Wisconsin Forests
- Description: In this study, historic data plant community surveys conducted in Wisconsin during the 1940s and 1950s were used to compare forest understory composition of 80 sites 50 years later. A resurvey was conducted to examine how species composition has changed over time. Results found species richness to have little impact on nonnative species establishment 50 years later. Additionally, nonnative species were determined to have little influence on native species loss over this time period.
