Author(s): M. Moon, M. R. Rattray, F. E. Putz, G. Bowes

Year: 1993

Journal: Functional Ecology
Volume: 7
Issue: 5

Article Topic(s): Establishment methods, Water
Research Setting(s): Wetland

Species Referenced: Mikania scandens (Climbing hempvine),


Investigates the effects of flooding on the establishment of three different stem lengths of planted Mikania scandens. Flooding increased growth of the small plants but did not affect the medium and large plants. Mikania scandens is adapted to flooding through specialized cells in its stems. Most other herbaceous, wetland species have specialized leaf cells.
