    • Abstract


      The competitive relationships betweenEupatorium adenophorum andEupatorium riparium were studied at Barapani (950 m) and Upper Shillong (1700 m) using 3 altitudinal populations of the former and one population of the latter.Eupatorium riparium was generally more susceptible to competition from the native population ofEupatorium adenophorum compared to the introduced population. The two species tended to avoid each other in mixtures to a certain degree, due to niche differentiation.
