allelochemicals, climate change, ecosystem resilience, invasive species, sustainable land


Allelopathy refers to the chemical interactions between plants, where certain species release chemicals which affect the growth, development and survival of neighboring plants. These chemicals, known as allelochemicals, can have also positive or negative side effects on ecosystems, which have potential to interact with climate change. However, the common  understanding of the ecological implications of allelopathy and its impact on plant community dynamics, species composition, and biodiversity is limited, with scarce information available on how allelochemicals are produced, released, and affect neighboring plants. The significance of allelopathy for climate change effects on agriculture relates to its interaction with carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, and soil health and last but not least with greenhouse gas emissions. This review highlights the importance of allelopathy as a vital ecological process for sustainable land management and ecosystem resilience in the face of climate-related challenges.
