We studied 29 pine (Pinus) species to test the hypothesis that invasive species in disturbed habitats have distinct attributes. Seedling relative growth rate (RGR) and measures of invasiveness were positively associated across species as well as within phylogenetically independent contrasts. High RGR, small seed masses, and short generation times c...

... Strobus has only one invasive species in the sample) and because invasive species require faster growth, a negative correlation also exists with respect to seedling relative growth rate (RGR) across the whole genus. Among the components of RGR, leaf area ratio (LAR), specific leaf area (SLA) and relative leaf production rate (RLPR) are negatively correlated with genome size (Grotkopp et al. 2002(Grotkopp et al. , 2004. The strongest positive correlation has been observed between genome size and seed mass and mode of dispersal (animal vs. wind). ...
