Relative risk for expansion of Russian olive summarized by 5th level watersheds for the Wyoming Basin Rapid Ecoregional Assessment project area. Current risk of expansion based on suitability models using recent climatic conditions (1980 to 2009). Expansion risk is classified as low for probabilities less than 0.33, medium for probabilities between 0.34 and 0.66, and high for probabilities greater than 0.67. Probabilities based on occurrence models developed by Jarnevich and Reynolds (2011) and Jarnevich and others (2011). Hatched lines denote watersheds where LANDFIRE indicted Russian olive and (or) tamarisk presence. These data are provided by Bureau of Land Management (BLM) "as is" and may contain errors or omissions....

Point locations for Russian olive stems aged in the field in two reaches along the Escalante River in fall of 2014 and spring through fall of 2015. Dataset includes information for each stem on diameter at stump height (DSH), age when the tree was cut, year it was cut, estimated year of establishment, and ArcGIS-estimated distances to the mapped 1981 active stream channel of the Escalante River.

Environmental tolerance of an invasive riparian tree and its potential for continued spread in the southwestern US
Questions: Exotic plant invasion may be aided by facilitation and broad tolerance of environmental conditions, yet these processes are poorly understood in species-rich ecosystems such as riparian zones. In the southwestern United States (US) two plant species have invaded riparian zones: tamarisk (Tamarix ramosissima, T. chinensis, and their hybrids) and Russian olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia). We addressed the following questions: (1) is Russian olive able to tolerate drier and shadier conditions than cottonwood and tamarisk? (2) Can tamarisk and cottonwood facilitate Russian olive invasion? Location: Arid riparian zones, southwestern US. Methods: We analyzed riparian tree seedling requirements in a controlled...

Decomposition of leaf litter from a native tree and an actinorhizal invasive across riparian habitats
Dynamics of nutrient exchange between floodplains and rivers have been altered by changes in flow management and proliferation of nonnative plants. We tested the hypothesis that the nonnative, actinorhizal tree, Russian olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia), alters dynamics of leaf litter decomposition compared to native cottonwood (Populus deltoides ssp. wislizeni) along the Rio Grande, a river with a modified flow regime, in central New Mexico (U.S.A.). Leaf litter was placed in the river channel and the surface and subsurface horizons of forest soil at seven riparian sites that differed in their hydrologic connection to the river. All sites had a cottonwood canopy with a Russian olive-dominated understory. Mass loss...

Elaeagnus angustifolia L., a nonnative N2-fixer, has established within riparian corridors of the interior western United States and is now the fourth most frequently occurring woody riparian plant in this region. We examined whether E. angustifolia alters pools and fluxes of soil inorganic N at eight sites dominated by Populus deltoides ssp. wislizeni along the Rio Grande in New Mexico over 2 years. E. angustifolia contributed a small fraction of total leaf fall (<5% across sites) but accounted for a disproportionately high amount of N (19%) that entered the system from P. deltoides and E. angustifolia leaf fall, due to the high N content (>2%) of E. angustifolia senesced leaves. Soil inorganic N concentrations...
