Table of Contents

PART I - Assessing ecosystem processes and invasive plant impacts
1) Managing invasive species in heterogeneous ecosystems
2) Linking disturbance regimes, vegetation dynamics, and plant strategies across complex landscapes to mitigate and manage plant invasions
3) Land-use legacy effects of cultivation on ecological processes
4) Resource pool dynamics: conditions that regulate species interactions and dominance
5) Invasive plant impacts on soil properties, nutrient cycling, and microbial communities

PART 2 - Principles and practices to influence ecosystem change
6) Weather variability, ecological processes, and optimization of soil micro-environment for rangeland restoration
7) The effects of plant-soil feedbacks on invasive plants: mechanisms and potential management options
8) Species performance: the relationship between nutrient availability, life history traits, and stress
9) Reducing invasive plant performance: a precursor to restoration
10) Revegetation: using current technologies and ecological knowledge to manage site availability, species availability, and species performance
