We firstly performed a series of in vitro germination bioassays addressed to test whether the different peppertrees organs contain secondary metabolites with the potential to prevent germination of native plants, as well as to assess whether these effects differ between male and female trees.
Thus, although more research is needed to assess the magnitude of these effects in the field, our results allow proposing that urgent actions are required to control the spread of peppertrees in Mexico and hence promote the recovery of native vegetation in human-disturbed areas of semiarid regions.
Nevertheless, since the inhibitory effects of allelopathic compounds usually depend upon their concentrations Batish et al. Thus, for each plant organ we obtained a concentrated extract equivalent to g of plant organs per liter of distilled water, and a diluted extract equivalent 50 g of plant organs per liter of distilled water.
Alelopatia: el potencial de las plantas medicinales en el control de espécies espontáneas
Journal of Ethnobiology 3: The study added medicinal plants that possess potential secondary allelopathic compounds, with the possibility of being used in the production of natural herbicides. Shoot emergence rates of Echinocactus platyacanthus Figure 2AFerocactus latispinus Figure 2B and Myrtillocactus geometrizans Figure 2C were lower in the soil collected beneath male peppertrees, as compared to the other soil types. After their establishment, these invasive plants can prevent the recovery of native vegetation in several ways Levine et al.
Lifetime Learning Publications, Belmont. Myrtillocactus geometrizans and Mammillaria longimamma also displayed lower seedling biomass on soils collected beneath the canopy of this invasive species, but no differences were found between peppertree genders Figure 3C and 3D.
These analyses were conducted separately for each native species and, when differences were detected, the post-hoc Tukey test was used to assess differences between soil types.
Influencia de la alelopatía en los cultivos
Nevertheless, it is important to highlight that the cactus Mammillaria longimamma displayed lower germination rates in those watering treatments where extracts from fruits and leaves of female trees were applied. In this case, the seedlings of two cacti Echinocactus platyacanthus and Ferocactus latispinus and the two succulent monocots Agave salmiana and Yucca filifera displayed lower biomass on soils collected beneath male peppertrees than in the other soil types.
Toward a causal explanation of plant invasiveness: Forest Ecology and Management Restos vegetais e liteira podem interferir no desenvolvimento de plantas. Symbols on the side of each figure indicate the watering treatment to which each curve belongs to. This procedure concurs with those used by other authors that have assessed the allelopathic effects of peppertrees on crops Materechera and Hae, ; Borella et al.
For this, g of each plant organ staminate flowers, fruits and leaves of male and female trees were crushed it with 1 L of distilled water.
An integrative plant-fungal process. Conversely to that reported for these cactus species, germination rates of Mammillaria longimamma were more strongly reduced by the concentrated extracts of fruits and leaves of female peppertrees Figure 1D.
To our best knowledge, this is the first study reporting allelopathic effects of peppertrees on native plants from Mexico, but this is also the first study indicating differential gender effects for invasive dioecious species with allelopathic potential.
Aqueous extracts were prepared within 24 h after cultivow of plant organs. Although it clutivos important to recognize that these differential effects may be partially due to the influence of chemical variables that we were unable to measure, such as the osmotic potentials of the aqueous extracts, our results suggest that staminate flowers produced by male individuals would have the most remarkable inhibitory effects on the germination of these species.
Although this allelopathic inhibition, as commonly referred to, occurs without involving direct competition among species, allelopathic plants take advantage from this process because they can monopolize the use of resources within their area of influence by excluding other potential competitors Muller, Cultivox Journal of Chemical Engineering The results of all these experiments indicated that both peppertree genders can reduce germination of native species, but also suggested that male peppertrees would have stronger allelopathic effects than female peppertrees.
These bioassays cultjvos indicated that the magnitude of these effects might vary between vegetative and reproductive plant organs, as well as between male and female peppertrees.
To test the allelopathic effects of these extracts we prepared plastic Petri dishes 50 mm diameter by 12 alrlopatia deep using sterile cotton pads as germination substrate. Additionally, we conducted experiments where seeds of native species were sowed on soils collected beneath the canopy of both tree genders.
This reinforces the suggestion that male peppertrees trees have higher potential than female individuals to impair the performance of these succulent species. Allelopathic potencial of Eucaliptus spp. The following work consists of a bibliographical research that aims to gather the information disseminated in several articles on the biodiversity of medicinal plants as natural herbicides.
For each species, these dishes were split into nine groups 5 dishes per group ; eight groups of dishes separately received 5 mL of the different aqueous extracts male flowers, fruits, and leaves of male and female trees at the two concentrations concentrated and diluted extractswhile the ninth group of dishes only received distilled water control group.
Therefore, a total of seeds of each species received each watering treatment. It is important to encourage this type of studies, for an ecological perspective in general, to enable the manipulation of allelopathic interactions related to agriculture Palabras clave: Besides testing whether soils collected beneath peppertrees affect germination, the seedlings resulting from the greenhouse experiments were alleopatia to assess whether peppertrees affect the growth of succulent plants.

Management of mycorrhizas in agriculture, horticulture and forestry. Environmental and Experimental Botany This dioecious tree was introduced from South America by the middle of the 16 th century as result of the commercial exchange between the former viceroyalties of Peru and New Spain Kramer, Anthriscus caucalis Apiaceae decreases diversity, evenness, and survival of native herbs in the Chilean matorral. Although peppertrees have negative allelopathic effects on crops, their effects on these native plants remain unknown.
Germination rates of all native species significantly differed among watering treatments in the in vitro bioassays results of statistical analyses in Table 1.

Allelopathic effect of Schinus molle essential oils on wheat germination.
Seeds of all these species were obtained by collecting mature fruits between October and January Potential of aqueous extracts from parts of the pepper tree Schinus molle L.
