2008-2009: Physiological Advantage of Autumn Olive (summer research, not part of a class)

Three students conducting summer research over a three-year period determined that the invasive shrub Autumn Olive (Eleagnus umbellata) competed effectively in open roadsides or abandoned fields and yet dominated in the understory of young woodland areas.  Autumn olive exhibited photosynthesis rates and water use efficiency comparable to two and greater than two other competing native shrubs in meadow environments, but had much higher photosynthesis rates (2-3X) and water use efficiency than all native tree species in the understory canopy of the woodland environment.
