Of the 19 species in the plots of the shaded seep, Symplocarpus
foetidus (skunk cabbage) was dominant with a mean cover of 39.
quinaria were collected by sweeping over cucumber baits set out within patches of the skunk cabbage Symplocarpus
Rhizosphere NA of 3 previously unstudied plants (Acorus americanus, Decodon verticillatus and Symplocarpus
foetidus) are given.
The understory is dominated by Sphagnum affine, Thuidium delicatulum, Pallavicinia lyellii, Impatiens capensis, Symplocarpus
foetidus, Osmunda cinnamomea, Vaccinium corymbosum, Toxicodendron vernix and Ilex verticillata.
The group is remarkable among insects in that it comprises species that utilize two very different kinds of breeding sites (larval food resources): mushrooms and decaying water plants, such as Saggitaria (Spencer 1942), Symplocarpus
(Jaenike 1978), and Lysichiton (Wheeler 1954).
Seven species have C values of 8, including Cirsium muticum, Coreopsis tripteris, Liatris spicata, Phlox maculata, Solidago patula, Symphyotrichum oolentangiense, and Symplocarpus
How honey bees forage for pollen at skunk cabbage, Symplocarpus
The herbaceous cover in these forested wetlands tends to be poorly developed and consists primarily of Osmunda cinnamomea, Symplocarpus
foetidus and mosses (Sphagnum spp.
