Published source details

García-de-Lomas J., Schwarzer H., Sanz F.J. & Fernández-Carrillo L. (2018) Native plant recovery after the mechanical removal of invasive Agave spp. in coastal habitat in Almería, southeast Spain. Conservation Evidence, 15, 48-49

Summary

One year after mechanical removal of invasive Agave spp. in coastal sandy habitats in southeast Spain, the native plant composition showed partial recovery. However, the subsequent proliferation of Agave rhizome offshoots will require periodic rounds of manual, selective control.
