Cyperaceae: Cyperaceae, sedge family of monocotyledonous flowering plants, a division of the order Poales. The Cyperaceae are grasslike herbaceous plants found especially in wet regions
El holotypo de Carex sagei proviene de Chile central, y su nombre ha sido tratado desde hace tiempo como sinónimo de C. fuscula. Un estudio reciente indicó, sin embargo, que C. sagei is asignable a Carex sección Ceratocystis, mientras que C. fuscula pertenece a la sección Spirostachyae. Se demuestra además que C. sagei es el nombre correcto de plantas actualmente denomindas C. barrosii. Carex sagei crece en Argentina, Chile, e Islas Malvinas (Falkland Islands), donde frecuenta hábitats palustres tales como pantanos, pastizales húmedos y márgenes de lagos, desde casi el nivel del mar hasta los 850 m s.m.. Palabras clave. Carex; Cyperaceae; Ceratocystis; Sudamérica; Taxonomía.. INTRODUCTION. The genus Carex L. (Cyperaceae) is represented in austral South America with about 110 species, most of them growing in the mountains and cooler regions of the continent. The great naturalist Rodulfo A. Philippi (1808-1904), born in Germany and late director of the Chilean Museo Nacional de Historia ...

article{8559943, abstract = {We investigated the monophyly of Costularia (25 species), a genus of tribe Schoeneae (Cyperaceae) that illustrates a remarkable distribution pattern from southeastern Africa, over Madagascar, the Mascarenes and Seychelles, to Malesia and New Caledonia. A further species, Tetraria borneensis, has been suggested to belong to Costularia. Relationships and divergence times were inferred using an existing four marker phylogeny of Cyperaceae tribe Schoeneae expanded with newly generated sequence data mainly for Costularia s.l. species. Phylogenetic reconstruction was executed using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood approaches. Divergence times were estimated using a relaxed molecular clock model, calibrated with fossil data. Based on our results, Tetraria borneensis is not related to the species of Costularia. Costularia s.l. is composed of four distinct evolutionary lineages. Two lineages, one including the type species, are part of the Oreobolus clade, i.e. a ...
The Cyperaceae are a family of graminoid (grass-like), monocotyledonous flowering plants known as sedges, which superficially resemble the closely related rushes and the more distantly related grasses. The family is large, with some 5,500 known species described in about 90 genera,[2][3] the largest being the "true sedges" genus Carex[4][5] with over 2,000 species.[6] These species are widely distributed, with the centers of diversity for the group occurring in tropical Asia and tropical South America. While sedges may be found growing in almost all environments, many are associated with wetlands, or with poor soils. Ecological communities dominated by sedges are known as sedgelands. ...

II. Classification. - Gramineae are sharply defined from all other plants, and there are no genera as to which it is possible to feel a doubt whether they should be referred to it or not. The only family closely allied is Cyperaceae, and the points of difference between the two may be here brought together. The FIG. 1 6.. Fruit ofSporo- bolus, showing the dehiscent pericarp and seed.. best distinctions are found in the position of the embryo in relation to the endosperm - lateral in grasses, basal in Cyperaceae - and in the possession by Gramineae of the 2-nerved palea below each flower. Less absolute characters, but generally trustworthy and more easily observed, are the feathery stigmas, the always distichous arrangement of the glumes, the usual absence of more general bracts in the inflorescence, the split leaf-sheaths, and the hollow, cylindrical, jointed culms - some .or all of which are wanting in all Cyperaceae. The same characters will distinguish grasses from the other glumiferous ...
Description from Flora of China. Herbs, annual or perennial, rhizomatous to stoloniferous. Culms (stems) simple, often 3-sided. Leaves basal and/or cauline, often 3-ranked, comprising a blade and sheath but sometimes only sheath present; sheath open or closed; ligule often present, sometimes on opposite side to leaf blade; leaf blade usually linear, grasslike, sometimes basally broader and constricted into a pseudopetiole.

A sedge is a grass-like plant (graminoid) in the sedge family (Cyperaceae). Most would look down the sedges while walking through the woods or a wetland and just think they are grasses. While they fill much the same ecological role as the true grasses (Poaceae/Gramineae) they are botanically unique.. One thing that most people learn about sedges is the saying "sedges have edges" This refers to the triangular shaped stems of many of the sedge species. If you roll the base of the majority of the sedge species, particularly the Carex and Cyperus, between your fingers you feel the edges plainly. If you were to cut the stem in cross-section you would notice the triangular shape.. There are many exceptions to the rule. Most importantly there are other plants like Common Bur reed, and Sweet Flag have triangular stems that are not in the sedge family. Then there are those species like softstem bulrush that have perfectly round stems. Beware the "sedges have edges saying.". ...

Monocots, or monocotyledons, are a class of the flowering plants, or angiosperms. Monocots are named for and recognized by the single cotyledon , or seed leaf, within the seed. The first green blade emerging from the seed upon germination is the cotyledon, which contains sugars and other nutrients for growth until the leaf is able to photosynthesize. Monocots comprise about 67,000 species, or one-quarter of all flowering plants. They include not only the very large grass family (Poaceae, 9,000 species), but also the orchid family (Orchidaceae, 20,000 species), and the sedge family (Cyperaceae, 5,000 species), as well as palms, lilies, bromeliads (including pineapple), and the Araceae, which includes skunk cabbage and philodendron. The angiosperms have traditionally been divided into monocots and dicots alone, but recent work has shown that while monocots form a natural evolutionary group, dicots do not, and so the angiosperms are now grouped into monocots, eudicots , and basal angiosperms.

Existing biozonation schemes for the Niger Delta are mainly qualitative with zonal intervals too large to record subtle events. This has made it necessary to look for additional palynological events to enable recognition of shorter, more refined interval zones to improve stratigraphical definition. Hitherto unrecognised occurrence trends of palynomorphs were discovered and used to construct a new zonation scheme that can be applied in the offshore delta area. Late Miocene to Early Pleistocene sediments have been divided into five principal assemblage zones: FF1, Anthoceros abundance zone; FF2, Elaeis guineensis-Echiperiporites icacinoides zone; FF3, Lycopodium-Retibrevitricolporites obodoensis/protrudens zone; FF4, Cyperaceae abundance zone; and FF5, Echitriletes pliocenicus-Podocarpus milanjianus zone. The zones are further subdivided into 16 sub-zones based on quantitative events with some having finer subdivisions into (a) and (b). Examples of the zonations applied to three exploration wells ...

Soil cores of 5cm diameter and 20cm depth were taken at approximately 2 week intervals during the 2001 growing season. Three age classes of Eriophorum vaginatum roots (gray (senesced), brown (suberized) and white (active)) were extracted from the cores. Following extraction, cores were cut into 5 4cm sections and sorted for roots within 1 week of extraction. Prior to processing, cores were refrigerated at ~5(C. Some root samples were unwashed, then dried at 70(C for 48 hours prior to coupled combustion/reduction and gas chromatography analysis (CHN-1000, LECO Corporation). Additional samples were washed, and some unwashed, then analyzed using the soil-corrected method (Hunt et al., 1999). Unwashed roots were presumed to retain nutrient characteristics of the rhizoplane. Soil-corrected washed and unwashed root analysis was presumed to estimate nutrient concentrations specifically in the roots, provided a check upon the potential error associated with different degrees of washing and allow for ...

The central spikelet of each pseudo-umbellet is nearly sessile, while the remaining spikelets have pedicels that are 1-3 times their length. The spikelets are about 5-9 mm. long and about one-third as wide; they are oblongoid-ellipsoid to oblongoid-lanceoloid in shape. During the blooming period, the spikelets are light greenish brown in appearance, but they later become reddish brown to brown and somewhat bristly in appearance because of the dried-out styles of the florets. Each spikelet consists of a dense head of florets and their outer scales; these scales are arranged together in several overlapping series. Individual scales are about 2 mm. in length, lanceolate to ovate in shape, and hairless; they have broad central veins that are green. Each floret has 3 stamens, a tripartite style, and an ovary. The blooming period occurs during the summer, lasting 1-2 weeks. Cross-pollination of the florets is by wind. Afterwards, the florets are replaced by achenes (one achene per floret). These ...

always a bit disappointing to be able to see a bird really well through the scope but not get any decent photos but even with a 2000mm lens these birds would have been too far away and in fading light -- never heard or saw them early in the morning and all of the photos I saw taken of them at close range were Sedge Warblers ...
Carex buekii is a tall sedge, forming large stands in wetlands, particularly in river floodplains across Central Europe and thus on many sites determining the typical appearance of riverine habitats. Our paper aims at increasing the knowledge on ecology of C. buekii and its role in the wetlands. Field data were collected in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Italy. Carex buekii usually occurs in nutrient rich habitats, but is also capable of colonising relatively nutrient-poor ones; it grows on both acidic and alkaline soils (pH 3.3-7.4) with diverse concentrations of assimilable elements (Ca, Mg, P, K). One of the most important ecological characteristics of C. buekii is its relationship to the floodplains of watercourses. It seems to be dependent on, or at least very tolerant to regular disturbances by streaming, floods and transport of sediments. Carex buekii usually forms relatively uniform stands of its own association, Caricetum buekii. The species most frequently accompanying C.
Recently a list of wetland plants in Southern Africa has been completed by Glen (2010), but there is no field guide available for the layman or student on the wetland plants of South Africa. The number of plants associated with wetlands in South Africa is such that all could not be published in one book. This lead to this field guide, that primarily includes obligate wetland plants as outlined in the caption of this book, with special focus on all grass-like plants. The plant families included are all monocotyledons and include the Cyperaceae (sedges), Eriocaulaceae (eriocaulons), Juncaceae (rushes), Poaceae (grasses), Prioniaceae (palmiet), Restionaceae (restios), Typhaceae (bulrushes) and the Xiridaceae (yellow-eyed grasses).South Africa is known to be a water scarce country. This Guide is by no means complete, but is the first in addressing some of the grass-like plants that may be encountered in a wetland. This includes the grasses, reeds, restios, sedges, rushes, bulrushes, eriocaulons and ...

Peperomia Plants, which belong to the Pepper Family, are semi - succulents with very similar care requirements. The leaves of Peperomia houseplants are thick and plump, smooth and shiny. Their leaves are a deep true green colour. Peperomia houseplants can be used in dish gardens and terrariums and are also ideal for ta
This plant community is somewhat drier than the sedge meadow, and the major difference between them is that while there are often many sedges, the dominant plants are members of the grass family (Poaceae). Like sedge meadows, a major problem for wet meadows are invasive species like reed canarygrass, which may prefer the slightly drier wet meadows. However one of the most common native residents of wet meadows in the Midwest is Canada Bluejoint grass (Calamagrostis canadensis). Some consider the wet meadow to be a disturbed habitat.. Like sedge meadows, wet meadows are under threat from invasive species, especially Reed Canarygrass which has replaced many native plants with its monotypic stands. Fire suppression, and the absence of other conservation practices that control naturally invading shrubs and trees, leads to loss of this. ...

To say Friday was a compelling day at The Players Championship is to say that the alligators popping up around the famed No. 17 island green enjoyed the tasty frogs, heat and water. [...] the fun may just be beginning. By the time unknown John Merrick threaded home a 13-foot birdie putt in deepening shadows on the 18th green, knocking 15 players off the cut line, the tournament had seen near-record scoring, Tiger Woods slicing a drive so badly it left spectators ducking and gasping, and an unruly, drunken fan Tasered. When Merricks final putt dropped, 70 players had survived for weekend play, taking aim at a TPC Sawgrass course as accommodating as it has been for more than 15 years. With winds beginning to swirl later in the day, TPC Sawgrass began to show its teeth, hinting the finish may be far tougher than the start. Westwood, with three straight birdies to start his back nine, has a one-shot lead over Italys Francesco Molinari, Heath Slocum and Ryuji Imada.

And heres the stump and empty swath of lawn - the only lawn that was left in our entire yard - right after the tree came down. It happened in December, and I immediately started worrying about the Japanese maple and foundation shrubs, which would now receive a lot more sun in summer, although the north-facing house does give them some protection. I also knew that last bit of lawn had to go. Id only kept it because it was chock-full of oak sprouts, which are easier to mow than remove by hand from a planting bed, and I hoped that once we ground out the stump, the sprouts would wither away (sadly that has not been the case).. ...

Penns Sedge (Carex pensylvanica) Most people may not think of grasses or sedges as flowers, but if you look closely in certain spots around the museums restored areas, you will notice what looks like patches of thin grass with tiny yellow flower petals at the end of short stalks. Actually, this is not a grass but a sedge- a similar looking, but different family of plants. The differences between grasses and sedges are a bit complex to get into here, but an age old rule-of-thumb cliché is that "Sedges have edges." The base of a Sedge stem is solid and triangular, while grasses have hollow, round stems. It may be difficult to see, but if you roll the base of a sedge stem between your fingers, you can feel the "edges." If not, it is probably a grass. This sedge is also a trademark of Chicago area woodlands and nearby prairies that are not too shady. It is one of the first sedges to bloom, and its flowers are also extremely short-lived. The leaves remains visible until at least late summer ...
Salt-tolerant plants (halophytes) include herbaceous forbs, graminoids, and dwarf or subshrubs. Many of the forbs are succulent (e.g., Sarcocornia and Salicornia spp.). Graminoids often dominate Arctic salt marshes, while subshrubs dominate salt marshes in Mediterranean and. Table 1 Representative species of global salt marshes based on a summary by Paul Adam Arctic Puccinellia phryganodes dominates the lower elevations. Boreal Triglochin maritima and Salicornia europea are widespread. Brackish conditions have extensive cover of Carex spp. Temperate.

The species-rich genus Peperomia (Black Pepper relatives) is the only genus among early diverging angiosperms where epiphytism evolved. The majority of fruits of Peperomia release sticky secretions or exhibit hook-shaped appendages indicative of epizoochorous dispersal, which is in contrast to other flowering plants, where epiphytes are generally characterized by fruit morphological adaptations for anemochory or endozoochory. We investigate fruit characters using Cryo-SEM. Comparative phylogenetic analyses are applied for the first time to include life form and fruit character information to study diversification in Peperomia. Likelihood ratio tests uncover correlated character evolution. We demonstrate that diversification within Peperomia is not homogenous across its phylogeny, and that net diversification rates increase by twofold within the most species-rich subgenus. In contrast to former land plant studies that provide general evidence for increased diversification in epiphytic lineages, we
Growing in partial to deep shade, peperomia will thrive in moist, rich, organic soils or less fertile sandy soils. Although preferring high humidity, it must have well-drained conditions to avoid stem and root rot. Plant on 12- to 18-inch centers for quick establishment as a ground cover. It is best to err on the dry side when growing peperomia.. A few available cultivars include Alba, young growth entirely white-yellow, marked with bright red; Albomarginata, grey-green leaves with silvery border; Albomarginata Minima, dwarf form of the preceding; Minima, compact plant, leaves one to two inches long; and Variegata, grey-green blotched green leaves with a broad, creamy-white margin.. Propagation is by cuttings which root easily or by division. ...

This study investigated the diversity, community composition, and abundance of anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria along the altitudinal gradient in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Two types of soil samples (wetland and dryland soils, n = 123) were collected from 641 m to 5,033 m altitudes. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) screening showed that anammox were not widespread, and were only detected in 9 sampling sites of the 50 sites tested by amplifying the 16S rRNA genes. Then, only samples collected from Linzhi (2,715 m), Rikaze (4,030 m), and Naqu (5,011 m), which were positive for the presence of anammox, were further processed to explore the biogeography of anammox bacteria in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau ...
Herbaceous plants (in botanical use frequently simply herbs) are plants that have no persistent woody stem above ground.[1] The term is mainly applied to perennials,[2] but in botany it may also refer to annuals or biennials,[3] and include both forbs and graminoids.[citation needed]. Annual herbaceous plants die completely at the end of the growing season or when they have flowered and fruited, and they then grow again from seed.[4]. Herbaceous perennial and biennial plants may have stems that die at the end of the growing season, but parts of the plant survive under or close to the ground from season to season (for biennials, until the next growing season, when they flower and die). New growth develops from living tissues remaining on or under the ground, including roots, a caudex (a thickened portion of the stem at ground level) or various types of underground stems, such as bulbs, corms, stolons, rhizomes and tubers. Examples of herbaceous biennials include carrot, parsnip and common ...
Carex buchananii, commonly known as leatherleaf sedge, is a perennial evergreen sedge that is native to New Zealand. Narrow, fine, upright, grass-like, copper-bronze to cinnamon-brown leaves (less than 1/2" wide) rise to 18-24" tall, arching slightly at the tips. Unixexual flowers appear in summer (June-August), but the flowers are ornamentally insignificant (small, green and lacking petals or sepals) and often sparse. Solid triangular stems distinguish sedges, including the species herein, from grasses which have round and usually hollow stems. Around 2,000 species of Carex grow in a variety of habitats (often moist to wet areas) throughout the world. Identification of individual species can be very difficult ...
Plot location was chosen based on dominate vegetation type (T or W). The tussock tundra plots are located near the Moist Acidic Tundra plots characterized by Shaver and Chapin (1991). The wet sedge plots are located near the outlet of Toolik Lake; all plots have been used by the Arctic LTER project at Toolik Lake.. In wet sedge tundra, three 1 m2-sized plots were positioned randomly in each of two treatments of block 2 of the LTER wet sedge scheme (outlet site), control and N+P-fertilized , respectively, in 2000. Paired control and fertilized plots were labelled with 14C and 15N at one of three different dates of the summer season 2001.. In moist acidic tussock tundra six 1 m2 sized plots were positioned in three of the X (=extra) blocks of the LTER scheme, in 2001, inside an area extending 5 m from the boardwalks and, positioning plots so that similar area shares between tussocks and intertussock areas was achieved. In each of the three X blocks two 1m2-sized plots were established. The ...

For a long time geophytic Peperomias have been considered as a rather small subgenus (Tildenia). Recent field work and extended study of herbarium specimens revealed that this group includes a lot more variety than initially thought. The recent description of 25 new species almost doubles the number of known Tildenia species.. Geophytic Peperomias (only showing above ground parts in the rainy season and storing reserves in an underground tuber to survive the dry period) occur in two hot spots (one in Mexico-Guatemala, the other one in Peru-Bolivia) with a limited number of species occurring in between. New species described from the Mexico-Guatemala area are Peperomia albonervosa, P. basiradicans, P. cavispicata, P. elatior, P. exclamationis, P. occulta, P. putlaensis, P. questionis, and P. tepoztecoana ...
