The article entitled The Hydrological-Hydrochemical Factors that Control the Invasion of the Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) in Succession in Areas with Opencast Mines by J. Kidawa, D. Chmura and T. Molenda, presents very interesting research results on the phenomenon of vegetation colonization and succession in the vicinity of the mine. In the article, the authors attempted to answer the following research numerous questions, e. g: Are there differences in the share of R. pseudoacacia in positions of different humidity and terrain? The occurrence of this species in the study area was possible due to the propagule pressure (fruits, seeds) of R. pseudoacacia from the adjacent forest, which was confirmed by other studies. R. pseudoacacia is only able to invade dry sites, and on wet sites, its spread and abundance is strongly constrained.
