Author(s): B. W. Touchette, L. R. Iannacone, G. Turner and A. Frank
Journal: Aquatic Ecology
Article Topic(s): Irrigation, Stress, Water
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Saururus cernuus (Lizard's tail),
AbstractEvaluates physiological adaptations to drought in Saururus cernuus and Juncus effusus, both wetland species. This information may provide useful information on habitat tolerances and irrigation requirements for this species.
