Lauren Allen Lab Monday 6-8:50 Ecology Pre-Lab 1. For reference at the end of a document: Angle, Scott. (2006) Do high-nickel leaves shed by the nickel hyperaccumulator Alyssum murale inhibit seed germination of competing plants?. New Phytologist,173 (3). Retrieved March 12, 2007, from http://www.blackwell- synergy.com/doi/full/10.1111/j.1469-8137.2006.01952.x For a citation within a document: Angle (2006) 2. The article I chose to use refers to several plant vs. plant allelopathic interactions. The hyperaccumulator, or the plant that releases the phytotoxin (in this case Nickel), was Alyssum murale . The plants tested in soil containing the hyperaccumulator biomass (the leaf degradation provides the Nickel in the soil) included Alyssum montanum, Avena fatua, Bromus hordeaceus, Lolium multiflorum, Lolium perenne, Chenopodium album, and Brassica kaber . They were each tested in two different soils as well (Christiana soil and Brockman soil). In this study the Chemical Ecology, which is the study of the interactions of chemicals between living organisms, that was tested was if the Nickel produced by the Alyssum murale inhibited the germination of its competitors. Interspecific competition, which is the competition between species for a certain nutrient, was
