On the importance of chemosystematic correlation in the study of the allelopathic potential of congeneric native and exotic species of herbs

This abstract presents the results of screening for allelopathic activity of three pairs “aboriginal-exotic” of comparison species of herbs, including invasive species, systematically related at the level of the genus. It was shown that a 1% leaf extract of Solidago virgaurea and S. canadensis, Pulmonaria obscura and P. saccharata, Veronica serpyllifolia and V. fi liformis had a similar or equal inhibitory eff ect on the germination and growth of test-plant roots in biotests owing to its chemosystematic correlation.

Invasive Species of Plants in the Syzranka River Basin

The article presents results of a study of invasive plants on the territory of the Syzranka river basin: found 40 species of invasive plants, widespread and naturalized in varying degrees. Among them 5 species-«transformers», 5 alien species, naturalization semi-natural mastered the community, 18 kinds of dispersing and naturalized by disturbed habitats and 13 potentially invasive species.

About the Biology of the Invasive Species Hordeum jubatum L. in Bashkir Trans-Urals

The results of researches of 7 coenopopulations of North American invasivespeciesHordeumjubatumL.(Poaceae)inthe Trans-Urals of the Republic of Bashkortostan. Hordeum jubatum spreads on the steppe zone of the region. It dominates over other plants and it is share of participation in the community is 45,5–60,5%. The density of grass invasive species – 9–18 plants per 1 m2.Each plant produces 35 to 68 shoots, on average, is more than 600 shoots per 1 m2. The biomass of the type is no more than 0.25 kg/m2. Seed production is 39–54 pcs.

Some Features of the Biology of Invasive Species Conyza canadensis (L.) Cronq. in the Abkhazia Republic

The invasion of aggressive adventive plants in the territory of the Abkhazia Republic has a significant impact on the loss of biodiversity and the imbalance of ecosystems. In this regard, monitoring of the invasive component of flora is an urgent task. The aim of work was to study the biological features of invasive species Conyza canadensis under the conditions of Abkhazia. The research objectives included the study of morphometric parameters of the species and their variability.
