Formatted abstract
Genetic and environmental and reproductive factors can play a vital role in the invasion success of plant species. In fact, recent studies indicate that plant reproductive systems are an important determinant of invasion success. To test these hypotheses, this study used two independent introductions of Parthenium hysterophorus L. (Asteraceae), which differ in invasion success post-introduction into Australia. Using individuals from both Clermont and Toogoolawah populations in this study, we examined some significant differences in their pattern of morphological characters, the floral structures and the reproductive behaviour of the two different populations of parthenium weed in Australia and assessed if differences identified in these populations correlate with invasiveness.
