Soil Fertility And Plant Growth In Soils From Pine Forests And Plantations: Effect Of Red Imported Fire Ants, Solenopsis Invicta (Buren)

In turn, these alterations may enhance soil quality for plant growth. This study examined the effect of the invasive red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta Buren, on soil properties and plant growth.
