Thread: Native species, conservation, etc.

    It is definitely D. brevifolia in Houston, not rotundifolia (according to Peter D'Amato) - despite having no experience of Texas, the chances of D. rotundifolia growing in Houston are very remote.

    Lithopsman, what do you mean by replenishing bogs? If you mean randomly planting CPs into them, don't do it, native or otherwise. As far as I am aware, the problem is not one of CP loss but of habitat loss or degredation due to drainage, water table lowering etc. and colonisation by woody plants. Protection and habitat restoration would be great so long as you know what you're doing, but planting a few extra Sarracenias or sundews won't do any good at all.

    Support Ducks Unlimited's wetland conservation and restoration program.

    If the habitat is intact and healthy, the native plants will take care of themselves.

    What I mean is first get a lot more information on the individual plants in the bog, their growing habits, etc. I will definately get the ICPS volunteers involved, maybe the seed bank could contribute... Also, I would only restore/protect only bogs that are being attacked by invasive species overgrowth, or being dammed for local water needs, but not just going around planting random Sarr.s and sundews... Sorry for the confusion! Good luck to all conservationists!

    That sounds great, and best of luck with it. I agree with Seminole.

    Anyone interested in US cp conservation or determining which cps are in their area should definately buy or borrow Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada by Schnell. It has by far the best descriptions of plant habitat that I've seen, and I've found it invaluable for tracking down carnivorous plants in New York for me to photograph.

    Just a note of caution.. from what I understand, Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada by Schnell is fairly accurate for the continental US.. but for the northern regions such as parts of Canada and Alaska.. the range maps were so far off it wasn't funny [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] many of the plants simply can't grow where his maps indicate. I know that that doesn't affect most of you.. I just thought I'd mention it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Yes, I do agree that his book is a little off for the north, but for me, [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]
