Effects of an introduced tree, New Mexico locust (Robinia neomexicana), on riparian birds
Biological invasions are global drivers of environmental change and riparian ecosystems are particularly susceptible to the effects of non-native species. While much research has focused on understanding the impacts of non-native introductions from other biogeographic regions, effects of plant species that spread close to or within their native ranges are relatively understudied. My research investigated the effects of the near-range introduction of a non-native woody plant, New Mexico locust (Robinia neomexicana), on a variety of ecological responses within the Clear Creek drainage of northwestern ...
