Jeff Mitton: Elaborate elephant's heads flowers require buzz pollination
Kenosha Pass, elephant's heads colored moist meadows for miles. Dense populations filled the high valleys drained by the Cimarron River, and they made a good showing in 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, ... Feb 3, 2016
Cops arrest Santeria “priest” with human bones
Santero priest holds machetes over his head as he moves around a fire during a Santeria ceremony during the annual Caribbean Festival in Loma del Cimarron, El Cobre, Cuba. Pope John Paul II's 1998 visit to Cuba made history, breaking down barriers between the church and the island's Communist government. But there was one important group left feeling snubbed, and its members are hoping things will be different when Pope Benedict comes. Santeria has its roots in Africa but is practiced by a majority of Cubans, far more than the less than 10 percent practicing Roman Catholicism. less
