Researchers at the Institute of Ecology and Botany of the Ecological Research Center of Eötvös Loránd University investigated the changes in the growth and seed yield and mass of the invasive encephalopathy (Conyza canadensis) in a precipitation manipulation field experiment in Kiskunság. The results of the research were published in the journal Oecologia.

Plant invasions – ie the continuous increase in the distribution area and population size of non-native plant species in habitats favorable to them – can cause serious problems both from the point of view of nature conservation and from forestry or agriculture and health, the Eötvös Loránd Research Network writes in its publication.
