New Research Article: Removing Privet has added benefit of removing exotic earthworms

Thanks to Mincy Moffett for sharing this reasearch.  This study investigated the possibility of a facilitative relationship between Chinese privet (Ligustrumsinense) and exotic earthworms in the southeast US. Earthworms and selected soil properties were sampled five years after experimental removal of privet from flood plain forests of the Georgia Piedmont region.
