An article by Mark Davis in Nature..this is all old hat to you, but I like his way of thinking (recently purchased a copy of “Invasion Biology, pub OUP, 2009), and every time I think about how many land managers never took a class on evolution and want to hang on to some notion of what’s native, and what’s not?

Unfortunately he doesn’t say much about Phragmites …but every time I ride the train from Newark International into NYC, I wonder what else could possible grow there?
