    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
