    • Weed resistance to synthetic auxin herbicides 

      Busi, Roberto; Goggin, Danica E.; Heap, Ian; Horak, Michael; Jugulam, Mithila; Masters, Robert; Napier, Richard; Riar, Dilpreet S.; Satchivi, Norbert; Torra Farré, Joel; Westra, Philip; Wright, Terry R. (JohnWiley & Sons Ltd, 2018)
      Herbicides classified as synthetic auxins have been most commonly used to control broadleaf weeds in a variety of crops and in non-cropland areas since the first synthetic auxin herbicide (SAH), 2,4-D, was introduced to ...
    • Weed seed fate during summer fallow: The importance of seed predation and seed burial 

      Baraibar Padró, Bàrbara; Canadell, Claudia; Torra Farré, Joel; Royo-Esnal, Aritz; Recasens i Guinjuan, Jordi (Weed Science Society of America, 2017)
      Maximizing weed seed exposure to seed predators by delaying post-harvest tillage has been suggested as a way to increase weed seed loss to predation in arable fields. However, in some areas of northeastern Spain, fields ...
    • Weed suppression greatly increased by plant diversity in intensively managed grasslands: A continental-scale experiment 

      Connolly, John; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Kirwan, Laura; Finn, John A.; Llurba, Rosa; Suter, Matthias; Collins, Rosemary P.; Porqueddu, Claudio; Helgadóttir, Áslaug; Baadshaug, Ole H.; Bélanger, Gilles; Black, Alistair; Brophy, Caroline; Čop, Jure; Dalmannsdóttir, S.; Delgado, Ignacio; Elgersma, Anjo; Fothergill, Michael; Frankow-Lindberg, Bodil E.; Ghesquiere, An; Golinski, Piotr; Grieu, Philippe; Gustavsson, Anne-Maj; Höglind, Mats; Huguenin-Elie, Olivier; Jørgensen, Marit; Kadziuliene, Zydre; Lunnan, Tor; Nykanen-Kurki, P.; Ribas Artola, Àngela; Taube, Friedhelm; Thumm, Ulrich; De Vliegher, A.; Lüscher, Andreas (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-09-27)
      1. Grassland diversity can support sustainable intensification of grassland production through increased yields, reduced inputs and limited weed invasion. We report the effects of diversity on weed suppression from 3 years ...
    • Weeds in Cover Crops: Context and Management Considerations 

      Baraibar Padró, Bàrbara; White, Charles M.; Hunter, Mitchell C.; Finney, Denise M.; Barbercheck, Mary E.; Kaye, Jason P.; Curran, William S.; Bunchek, Jess; Mortensen, David A. (MDPI, 2021-02-26)
      Cover crops are increasingly being adopted to provide multiple ecosystem services such as improving soil health, managing nutrients, and decreasing soil erosion. It is not uncommon for weeds to emerge in and become a part ...
    • Which trait dissimilarity for functional diversity: traitmeans or trait overlap? 

      de Bello, Francesco; Carmona, Carlos P.; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Leps, Jan; Mason, Norman W. H. (Wiley, 2013)
      Question: Many functional diversity indices require the calculation of functional trait dissimilarities between species. However, very little is known about how the dissimilarity measure used might affect conclusions ...
