Autotoxicity phenomena, including population deterioration, regeneration failure, and subsequent yield declines, are commonly observed in rice (Oryza sativa), tea tree (Camellia sinensis), Casuarina equisetifolia, Chinese fir (Cunninghamia lanceolata), tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), cucumber (Cucumis sativus) and other Cucurbit crops in Southern China. This article reviews the intensive autotoxicity research on these agricultural plant species in Southern China, including the phenomenon observed, possible autotoxins and mechanisms involved. Ecological implications and management strategies are also discussed.
