. Plant-soil feedbacks for A Bouteloua gracilis and B Eragrostis lehmanniana monocultures grown in soils conditioned for 12 weeks by E. lehmanniana. Plants were grown for 12 weeks prior to harvesting in the response phase. Soil inoculum collected from sites of known lovegrass invasion times on Appleton-Whittell Audubon Research Ranch, Sonoita, AZ. (n = 6). Similar letters over the bars indicate no difference in plant-soil feedbacks between invasion times. The boxes represent 25–75% interquartiles. The bold black lines inside the box represent the medians. Top and bottom whiskers indicate the maximum and minimum values, respectively. Values greater than zero indicate that a species performed better on live soil than on sterile soil, and vice versa.
