Abstract:
Brazilian pepper is an invader of Central and South Florida that is displacing native animal and plant species. Theories of how Brazilian pepper has adapted to the Florida ecosystem and dominates the new environment vary between those based on environmental factors or plant factors. This research reviews the theory that allelopathic chemicals produced by Brazilian pepper are introduced into the soil to inhibit native and other invasive species. It was determined that this could be proven via observations gained through laboratory and field experimentation, based on EPA guidelines. This review concludes that there is adequate evidence to support claims that allelopathic competition exists in Brazilian pepper.
