    Did the American Bison limit carnivorous plant distribution in North America?

    A glance at a map of the distribution of carnivorous plants in North America reveals that a large part of the continent is almost completely devoid of CPs. Here I've mapped the distribution of Drosera anglica (in yellow) and the genus Sarracenia (red). As you can see, the entire central part...

    Physio

    Hi All, I'm working on a field survey form for the NASC, and have run into a bit of a problem. I'd like for surveyors to be able to select the habitat type of a population from a list of habitat types on the form. Problem is, I've never visited the east coast, and thus only have a vague idea of...

    P. oblongiloba

    Forbes and I located this site in northern Michoacan, Mexico hoping to find P. oblongiloba and P. crenatiloba. While we were unable to find either flowers or rosettes of the annual P. crenatiloba, the perennial P. oblongiloba was in full bloom. [img]http://glasshousenursery.com/Pinguic....mg]...

    Wikipedia article

    Hi All, A small handful of us have been working on improving the cp related articles on Wikipedia. Recently, we decided to tackle the Sarracenia article, aided by Denis Barthel from Germany (he worked on the german Wikipedia and we both translated material back and forth). The article is pretty...

    Mt. hood national forest - part ii

    The third bog we visited was the Camas Prairie. Accessing the site required a short ramble through the woods. As soon as the trees started thinning, we saw D. rotundifolia. It was growing in moss (not sphagnum), rotting wood... ... and directly in fallen logs: D. anglica was also...

    Mt. hood national forest - part i

    Forbes and I have moved west from the Wallowas, and spent the past two days exploring three locations in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Both D. anglica and D. rotundifolia are relatively widespread in the Oregon Cascades, so much so that in order to get the most out of our trip, we are...

    Field trip report-

    Hi, I drove to a small and somewhat remote lake in the Wallowas based on a 1964 report of that location as a D. anglica site. Sure enough, when I arrived there a bog bordering the lake had a large population of D. anglica in full bloom. As I walked across the mat for the first time, I neared...
