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 gr... Jun 14, 2018
'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
The bitterroot grows on the dry slopes of the Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each brilliant blossom contains 60 to 70 tiny seeds, which are spread when the bloom dries and detaches from the plant and the wind blows the flowers across the plains. An enduring part of the culture and landscape of this region, the bitterroot was voted the Montana state flower in 1894. Anyone could vote, no matter age or gender. When the polls closed, 5,857 ballots were in. More than 32 separate flowers received votes. But the bitterroot was the clear winner with 3,621 votes, and has been our state flower ever since. Lewis And Clark are often credited with the discovery of the plant. In fact, its scientific name is Lewisia rediviva. But long before Lewis and Clark came along, the bitterroot was a staple in trade and cooking for several indigenous tribes, namely the Salish people who lived in the bitterroot's habitat. A sack full of the dried herb commanded a substantial price in trade. Documents show that a sack of the root could be traded for a horse. Salish women collected the root before the flowers of the p... Apr 6, 2018
Endangered Species Protection Sought for Rare Arizona Wildflower
The plant has been wiped out in New Mexico and from the Agua Caliente Regional Park in Tucson.Arizona eryngo is imperiled along the San Pedro River as pumping lowers the groundwater table connected to the plant’s wetland habitat. The groundwater pumping overdraft in the Fort Huachuca-Sierra Vista area is more than minus 5,000 acre-feet per year, with all recent hydrology studies predicting the demise of the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area if the unsustainable pumping continues. “Saving Arizona eryngo is important because it’s an indicator plant for the health of imperiled desert wetland habitats that many plants and animals rely on,” said Tierra Curry, a senior scientist at the Center. “The eryngo’s conspicuous flowers are of high value for many pollinators, including hummingbirds.” The Fish and Wildlife Service must evaluate today’s petition and publish a finding within one year on whether protection for the plant may be warranted. If the initial finding is positive, the flower will receive a status review that will result in either a proposal for listing or a finding that listing is not warranted. Arizona eryngo is in the carrot family and can grow to be more than 5 feet tall, with large, cream-colored spherical flowers. It is also called ribbonleaf button snakeroot, and its scientific name is Eryngium sparganophyllum. The Arizona Native Plant Advisory Group ranks Arizona eryngo as one of the most endangered plants in the state. (Center for Biological Diversity )Apr 6, 2018

State Supreme Court rules Richland flower shop discriminated against gay couple by refusing wedding service
U.S. Supreme Court, according to Lambda Legal. In 2014, the court declined to hear an appeal of a case out of New Mexico that went against a photographer who denied a same-sex couple service, the Associated Press reported.Stutzman’s lawyers with Alliance Defending Freedom said she acted consistently with her faith, but Washington justices “concluded that the government can force her — and, by extension, other Washingtonians — to create artistic expression and participate in events with which they disagree.”‘This case is about crushing dissent’Attorney Kristen K. Waggoner said government was formed to be freedom’s greatest protector, not its greatest threat. She noted that while Ingersoll and Freed were able to get wedding flowers from other Tri-City businesses, Stutzman’s freedom and everything she owns has been targeted relentlessly by the state and the ACLU.“This case is about crushing dissent. In a free America, people with differing beliefs must have room to coexist,” Waggoner said in the telephone press conference. “It’s wrong for the state to force any citizen to support a particular view about marriage or anything else against their will. Freedom of speech and religion aren’t subject to the whim of a majority; they are constitutional guarantees.”Waggoner said she hopes the ninth justice, nominee Neil Gorsuch, will be on the U.S. Supreme Court b...
