Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) and Morrow's honeysuckle (Lonicera morrowii) followed in the late 1800s.
It has also been noted that the abundance, biomass, and diversity of invertebrate species is lower in Morrow's honeysuckle compared to native species found at the same location (Love 2006, McChesney 2012).
We also tested whether landscapes densely populated with Morrow's honeysuckle were acting as habitat sinks.
At the time of this study, about 24 ha of Fort Necessity were dominated by Morrow's honeysuckle and were used for our research.
We were particularly interested in the impact of bush honeysuckle not only as a substrate, but also as a component of the early successional landscape; therefore, we included both nesting substrate and the percent cover of Morrow's Honeysuckle surrounding each nest in the model.
Hudon and Brush (1989) suggested a dietary explanation for the orange tail tips, and Brush (1990) later identified a potential exogenous source of the unusual pigment in the berries of Morrow's honeysuckle (Lonicera morrowii).
