Event Description:
Adaptive leaf anatomy, morphology and orientation of Hydrocotyle bonariensis growing along southeastern (USA) barrier island environmental gradients

Thursday, April 27, 11:00am - 12:00pm

TEB 368 - Macon Campus


Barrier islands of the southeastern United States are considered a physically controlled, harsh environment.  Only a small, select suite of plants have traditionally been able to tolerate these extreme conditions.  Within this small suite, plants exhibit a variety of functional groups or forms.  An interesting species that can be found in several habitats within the barrier island ecosystem is 
Hydrocotyle bonariensis.  Hydrocotyle bonariensis is a C3 perennial that almost exclusively grows via runners although it does produce copious amounts of flowers in the summer and tiny seeds in fall.  This investigation addresses adaptive strategies that H. bonariensis employs to survive in the barrier island environment.  Strategies involving leaf anatomy, morphology and orientation are explored.
