    Ecology 88:2758-65. 2007
    ..These results suggest that invasive species may often evolve increased growth, and that increased growth may facilitate adaptation to noncompetitive environments...

    USDA ARS Rangeland Resources Research Unit, 1701 Center Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80526, USA
    New Phytol 179:440-8. 2008
    ..In contrast to seeded invasive species, resident species did not respond to snow addition. These results suggest that increases in snowfall or variability of snowfall may exacerbate forb invasion in the mixedgrass prairie...

    Dana Blumenthal
    Rangeland Resources Research Unit, U S Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service, 1701 Center Avenue, Fort Collins, CO 80526, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:7899-904. 2009
    ..Consequently, enemy release and increases in resource availability may act synergistically to favor exotic over native species...

    Laura G Perry
    Department of Biology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, USA
    New Phytol 197:532-43. 2013
    ..Our results suggest that increased aridity will reduce riparian seedling growth despite elevated CO₂, and will reduce growth more for native Salix and Populus than for drought-tolerant exotic species...

    Jack A Morgan
    USDA ARS, Rangeland Resources Research Unit and Northern Plains Area, Fort Collins, Colorado 80526, USA
    Nature 476:202-5. 2011
    ..The results indicate that in a warmer, CO(2)-enriched world, both SWC and productivity in semi-arid grasslands may be higher than previously expected...

    New Phytol 187:426-37. 2010
    ..Our results indicate a more closed N cycle under elevated CO(2) and a more open N cycle with warming, which could affect long-term N retention, plant productivity, and C sequestration in this semiarid grassland...
