Anomalies and Outliers in South-Central BC Interior Plant Communities
I will be using pictures I’ve taken in the last few years to showcase anomalies and outliers in BC’s Interior flowering plant communities. I’ll discuss non-photosynthetic plants that use fungi to access carbon and nutrients, strange colour morphs of common species, ant-butterfly-plant associations, and dieback of certain species I have been noticing in the Interior. My hope is to dig into current research that highlights the sometimes strange and unexpected biologies of our most familiar plant species.
