Invasive alien plants in riparian systems

My PhD research focused on assessing how certain environmental variables, particularly changes in river flow regime, affect the abundance and distribution of invasive alien plants, namely Impatiens glandulifera, Fallopia japonica and Heracleum mantegazzianum. This research also addressed how these species impact native, riparian vegetation communities at various spatial and temporal scales. Supervisors: Prof. Nigel Willby and Dr Mario Vallejo-Marin.
