The Invasion of Canadian Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis L.) into Anthropogenic Landscapes of Belarus
Invasion of Canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis L.) into anthropogenic landscapes of the southeast of Belarus is considered. The maximum occurrence of Solidago canadensis L. is noted for the urbanized landscape. A comparison of repeated geological and botanical surveys at four key sites (2005–2008 and 2015–2016) is made. During this period of time Solidago canadensis L. became a dominant in all those sites and, as a consequence, the specific diversity of natural communities decreased.
