Study on allelopathic effect of Prosopis juliflora on mineral content of Acacia ehrenbergiana in Farasan Islands, KSA
The study indicated the allelopathy of Prosopis juliflora on Acacia ehrenbergiana through mineral analysis of both leaf extract and rhizoshere soil for both species. It was observed that all mineral content decreased in combined soil. Certain elements increased only in leaf extract of Prosopis as Fe+2 and Na+. Other elements decreased in leaf extract for two species as Mg+2 and Mn+2. This study reported that macro and microelements might be responsible for dominance of Prosopis juliflora and establish successfully in invaded areas.
