Jeff Mitton: Elaborate elephant's heads flowers require buzz pollination
Yankee Boy Basin and Governor Basin above Ouray.
Elephant's heads are found in subalpine and alpine habitats in western mountains from New Mexico to Alaska and throughout Canada, except for Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. They were first described from Greenland, where they are found in one or a few tiny populations.
The common name elephant's heads aptly describes the shape of the flowers. Each has a bulbous, silvery head, flared and draping ears and a curving trunk held high. Inflorescences are columns composed of dozens of flowers. A plant may have one or many inflorescences and attain a height of 30 inches.
Their unusual flower shape has attracted the attention of pollination biologists, who discovered that this species is an obligate outcrosser, incapable of self-pollination. In Colorado, the primary pollinators are at least seven species of bumble bees in the genus Bombus. Advertisement
Pollination biologists described specific bumble bee behaviors and floral morphology that convincingly suggest a long-term pattern of coevolution between bees and flowers. The flower has two lateral petals that suggest ears, and a median lower petal. Two upper petals are fused dorsally but not ventrally to form a galea (the elephant's domed forehead) with a rostral extension (the elephant's trunk).
The style, or female portion of the flower, extends through the trunk so that the stigma, which receives pollen, protrudes from the end of the trunk. The four anthers are hidden in the galea and they shed pollen through a small ventral opening at the base of the elephant's trunk.
How does the bee coax pollen from the anthers, which are inside the galea, or the elephant's head? It lands on the trunk, with its antennae reaching toward the galea. It then uses its mandibles to grasp the median ridge on the... Apr 20, 2018

Cure to remedy gardeners' spring fever
Fairbanks to glean information on fruit, flowers, herbs, wild mushrooms and the Georgeson Botanical Garden.As volunteers for the University of Alaska Fairbanks, master gardeners help the Cooperative Extension Service disseminate gardening information throughout Alaska. This year’s statewide conference is being hosted by Master Gardeners of the Tanana Valley at Pike’s Waterfront Lodge.Bob Bors, northern climate fruit breeder and recently published gardening author, will make his fourth trip from the University of Saskatchewan. Alaska fruit growers love this guy. Carmine Jewel, a very early ripening sour cherry, and many varieties of haskap, also known as honeyberries, have come from Bob’s breeding program. Bob will highlight super-hardy fruits, a chapter in his new book, “Growing Fruit for Northern Gardens,” co-authored with Sara Williams. Aware of gardening interests in the community, the master gardeners have also asked Bob to address pruning and training techniques for fruit.The gardening event kicks off the Friday evening before with a dinner presentation by Les Brake titled “Wildflowers and Wildlife of Africa.” Les’ images are sure to inspire. They will show the amazing biodiversity of Namaqualand in Southwest Africa, Kruger National Park and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, acclaimed to be one of the most magnificent botanical gardens in the world.Many of our garden flowers hail from Africa, includin...

I Brought You Flowers, Big Dead Raccoon Near Columbia City Station
Charles MudedeI brought you flowers, big dead raccoon on the corner of 32nd and South Alaska Street. You have been there for about five days, and though the flies buzz about you, your coat is still handsome, and you don't really smell of the death. Who or what killed you? What was the last thing you saw? Your family must miss you, and may come across you at night, pause, and wonder, like I wonder, why you are still there. But I do not think you died here. You must have met your end elsewhere and were brought here. But by whom? The construction workers on the massive development across the street or the ones who partially demolished the house that your dead eyes kind of stare at? I remember this house very well. Mexican Americans once lived here, and on Friday nights they would play music, drink beer, and repair cars. Those p... (TheStranger.com)
