Mermet Lake is a baldcypress
swamp, which has been dammed for management as a waterfowl hunting area of 1,064 hectares with 279 hectares of permanent water.
The success of reforestation of baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum [L.
Although the lake is dominated by baldcypress
only, the area surrounding Caddo Lake supports about 120 woody and over 300 herbaceous plant species, as well as 450 species of animals (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals), of which 44 are threatened or endangered (Sierra Club 2000's).
Branchlet swellings 2 to 3 cm long and 1 to 2 cm in diameter were discovered on baldcypress
in Fort Pierce, Florida by one of us (KLH).
The study area was characterized by varying degrees of hurricane damage (designated as low, moderate, and high), two forest types [bottomland hardwood ridges and slightly lower baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum)-tupelogum (Nyssa aquatica) swales], and two tree sizes (pulpwood and sawtimber) (see Helm 1995; Salyer 1995) and located south of Interstate 10 between the Atchafalaya and Mississippi Rivers in Iberville Parish, Louisiana.
From the beginning of European settlement in the South, there had been a market for the durable baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum), a softwood characteristic of the bottomland swamps (Cowdrey 92-93, 97-98; Herndon 135).
HOUSTON, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- More than fifty Reliant Energy employees joined Trees For Houston to plant 1,000 baldcypress
tree seedlings at Alief Community Park in celebration of Earth Day.
Tree rings in long-lived baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum) trees can be used to make inferences about seismic activity in the great 1811-1812 New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquakes.

In between these extremes lies a diversity of indigenous habitats: the old-growth deciduous and hemlock forests, cliffs, rocky stream gorges, and grassy and heath balds of the Appalachians; the sawgrass marshes, mangrove forests, and pine rocklands of south Florida; the carnivorous plant wetlands, baldcypress
swamps, live oak maritime forests, longleaf pine savannas, and dunes of the coastal plain; the oak-hickory forests, bottomland forests, prairies, glades, and barrens of the piedmont and continental interior; and the springs and extensive cave systems of limestone areas.
In order to gain a better understanding of spacing effect on baldcypress
growth, we examined the effects of spacing on diameter and height growth of 18-year-old baldcypress
planted at four different spacings.
Effects of light on growth, morphology, and photosynthesis in baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum (L.
Other wood species such as baldcypress
, redwood, and ponderosa pine also contain antifeedant chemicals that reduce termite survival (Carter and Smythe 1974).

They foraged on baldcypress
(Taxodium distichum) in greater proportion than availability during the nonbreeding season (DeLotelle et al.
