On the Road: Wildflower blooms, scenery in the desert

By Tim Viall, Special to The Record Tired of chilly mornings and frosty windshields? Use the late winter/spring to take a road trip to the California desert for wildflower blooms, exotic wildlife and stunning scenery. Our destination includes two stunning national parks, Death Valley and Joshua Tree, and several national monuments and state parks.We’re headed to Death Valley and Joshua Tree national parks. Take the scenic route over the Sierra via California Highway 88, where you’ll see snow above 6,000 feet and descend the Eastern Sierra, past Mono Lake and its other-worldly tufa columns, and Manzanar, the Japanese forced resettlement camp during World War II. Further south is Death Valley, just 425 miles and seven hours from Stockton.Death Valley was named during the 1849 California Gold Rush. A member of an immigrant wagon train from the Midwest died attempting to cut acros... (Stockton Record)

Researchers study flower that catapults pollen

Harvard and a faculty fellow of the Arnold Arboretum, and Stacey Combes, a professor at the University of California, Davis, used high-speed video to determine how fast the filaments move and to show how they target likely pollinators. The study is described in a recent paper in the journal American Naturalist."Those filaments are under tension, so when an insect comes along and pulls at them, they launch the pollen onto whatever is there," Switzer said. "There had been two longstanding hypotheses about these catapults. One was that they're used for wind pollination. But our findings point to the idea that the pollen attaches to pollinators that are likely to take it to another flower."Credit: Harvard UniversityThose filament catapults are actually long stalks that end with the male part of the plant, called the anther. When the flower develops, the anthers become stuck in tiny pockets on each petal. As the petals open, they pull back on the filaments, increasing the tension on them, and in effect leaving the catapults ready to fire.To understand the speed of those catapults and what they target, Switzer, Hopkins, and Combes conducted four studies.The first focused on the biomechanics of the catapults and tried to quantify how fast they fire pollen. The second created a heat map showing where the pollen was launched, while the third examined which pollinators visited the flowers. The final study involved preventing pollinators from visiting the plants as a way to investigate their ability to self-pollinate.The researchers' findings put the mountain laurel in rare company as one of the fastest-moving plants on the globe. When triggered, the catapults launch the pollen at more than 400 times the acceleration...

Portland Flower Market coping with shortage after semi crash

D, Ore. – The Portland Flower Market is coping with a shortage of flowers this week, after a semi-truck full of flowers bound for Portland crashed in California Saturday.“Normally, our coolers are just at this point overflowing with flowers, you rarely see any space at all like this,” explained Angie Lopez.Lopez is a buyer with Frank Adams Wholesale Florist, one of several wholesalers inside the Portland Flower Market running low on supplies.Lopez got a call Saturday that the semi full of flowers crashed south of Redding, California. One of the truck drivers died.Lopez says her heart goes out to the family during this difficult time, and at the same time she’s hard at work, even working together with others at the Portland Flower Market, piecing together flowers from various parts of the country to make up for the lack of flowers.“Everyone was very understanding, had really kind words for us to get through everything. What can we do? Maybe we take a collection for the driver’s family,” Lopez said. “Then, just keep going. It’s all wheels going at all times. We just have to push forward.”Lopez says while there was a shortage of flowers Monday... (

After a Fire, Fast-Growing Flowers Lock in a Long-Term Recovery

It is the perfect display of the “California mosaic,” Hendricks-Franco says. But for now, she is interested in one reddish-green tile in that mosaic: chaparral, a shrubland ecosystem dominated on most of these slopes by the shrub called chamise.The tile is no longer reddish-green. Hendricks-Franco and CalFire set the chaparral slopes at the research center ablaze in April 2016 and then again in October 2016, resulting in a new study site: 39.5 acres of charred chamise. We’re used to thinking about how fires regenerate the soil, allowing plants to recover and flourish. Hendricks-Franco wants to spin the question around and ask from a different perspective: what do plants do, after a fire, to allow the soil itself to recover? “Everyone knows that after a fire you get a flush of herbs,” she says. “A nature enthusiast or botanist would be excited about that botanical diversity. But what scientists find interesting is that having this many plants appear in such a short of time can have an impact on nutrient cycling.”Berkeley researcher Lindsey Hendricks-Franco and CalFire battalion chief Mike Maynard watch a controlled burn in Mendocino in 2016. (Photo by Evett Kilmartin, Hopland Research and Extension Center)Chaparral is built to thrive after wildfires. Many seeds, including chamise, rarely sprout until after a fire. On top of this, the fire leaves a thin layer of ash rich in nitrogen, the nutrient which typically limits growth in chaparral ecosystems. Ash is the chaparral’s ticket to sustained recovery. The fire is a gift to this ecosystem as much as it is a force of destruction.But there is a catch. The nitrogen is temporary. If plants don’t find it and hold it in place, it runs off into nearby streams and lakes with winter rains. Runaway nitrogen is bad both for the long-term health of the soil and for aquatic life. As dominant as it ultimately might be, chamise isn’t the plant to grab and fix the readily available nitrogen. Shrub regrowth will take years, and in the meantime, in a post-fire boom, other plants take advantage of the newly cleared space. The ones best equipped to grow are the ones that can most rapidly eat up the available...
