Previous studies of vegetation establishment in dam removal sites have shown that natural vegetation community establishment is highly variable and frequently includes species often considered undesirable in restorations. In this article, we examined two case studies where dam removal sites were planted with native species following dam removal in an effort to promote native species establishment and exclude invasive species. Some planted species established soon after the dam removals, but surveys four years later showed a decline in planted species and an increase in non-native species. In both cases, reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea) became well established in the interval between surveys. A seedbank analysis...

The Land Capability Potential Index (LCPI) is a hydrogeomorphic model of potential flow-return interval and soil drainage classes developed as a decision support tool for the restoration and management of floodplain habitat on the Lower Missouri River. Because the LCPI captures abiotic variables known to affect the distribution of plant species, it may be useful in predicting where invasive species are likely to occur and become abundant and as a framework for applying management actions to control their spread. The frequencies with which 5 non-native and 1 native invasive species occurred and exceeded 15 percent cover were examined in relation to LCPI classes using existing data collected during multiple studies...
