This week in invasive species blogging:
- bootstrap analysis blogs about new research showing that garlic mustard alters the ecology of the soil it grows in. Not good news for native plants that want to compete. I would link to the NYT article about it, but it costs money to read that now, so just heck out nuthatch's post and then link over to read the *free* original research paper. (Update: nuthatch was kind enough to send in this link to the NYT story)
- snowfall kitten has done something few of us would have the guts to do: she took the paper she wrote for a univerity course, Invasive Ants and Supercolonies, and she posted it online for the world to see. The ISW gives her an A+!
- The Urban Pantheist makes Japanese knotweed #129 out of 365 urban species.
