DNA C-values of 20 invasive alien species and 3 native species in South China.

Författare

Summary, in English

Cultivated fields and forests in South China are experiencing serious damage due to invasive alien plants. We

investigated the relation between DNA C-values and invasiveness. The DNA C-values of 23 species ranged from 0.39 pg to 3.37 pg. Herbs, perennials and native species had higher mean DNA C-values than shrubs, annuals and invasive alien species. DNA C-values decreased with increasing invasiveness. Paederia scandens, a harmful native species, has the lowest DNA C-value among the perennials, indicating that native species with low nuclear content may also possess an invasive potential.
