AbstractInvestigates 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.
