ABSTRACT:Many sedge species (Carex L. [Cyperaceae]) are found in varied vegetation communities that make up the boreal forest in northwest Alberta, Canada. Sedges make up a large part of wetland vegetation and, to a lesser extent, upland communities. Until recently, few have been considered for use in reclamation or revegetation of sites disturbed by oil and gas extraction, due in part to the lack of information regarding their germination requirements. Germination of 5 upland species: Dewey…

Propagation of native plants is generally more successful when plant scientists and managers have a broad understanding of the natural history of a species, including the conditions that seeds of

Need to Seed? Ecological, Genetic, and Evolutionary Keys to Seed-Based Wetland Restoration

As we approach the Decade of Ecosystem Restoration (2021–2030), there is renewed focus on improving wetland restoration practices to reestablish the habitat and climate mitigation functions and

Ecology of seed dormancy and germination in sedges (Carex)

TLDR
The present knowledge is not sufficient to determine unequivocally whether a phylogenetic component contributes significantly to the germination behaviour of the genus Carex, but certain tendencies are clearly indicated.

Relationships between seed germination requirements and ecophysiological characteristics aid the recovery of threatened native plant species in Western Australia

TLDR
The relationship between germination requirements and ecophysiological characteristics is similar for both threatened and common species, indicating that the process of recovery and restoration work for mining operations and community bushland regeneration as well as single species reintroductions can be greatly assisted.

The restoration of sedge meadows: seed viability, seed germination requirements, and seedling growth ofCarex species

To better understand how to establishCarex species from seed in created and restored wetlands, a series of experimental studies was conducted onCarex seed and seedlings. These studies included (1)

Thirty years of change in the vegetation communities of three valley mires in Suffolk, England

TLDR
It is concluded that maintenance of stable hydrologies is more important than extensive management in the long-term conservation of these sites.

GERMINATION ECOPHYSIOLOGY OF HERBACEOUS PLANT SPECIES IN A TEMPERATE REGION

TLDR
The purpose of these studies was to determine if there are correlations between the dormancy breaking and germination requirements of seeds and the germination phenology, life cycle type, habitat requirements, range of geographical distribution, and phylogenetic relationships of the species.

THE CAREX FLORA OF VARIED LANDSCAPES IN THE NETHERLANDS: AN EXAMPLE OF DECREASING ECOLOGICAL DIVERSITY

TLDR
It is argued, that the real decrease of many Carex species is much more severe than is indicated by the current census methods and reflects the recent changes in the Dutch flora as a whole.

Vegetation and environmental conditions in recently restored wetlands in the prairie pothole region of the USA

How closely the vegetation of restored wetlands resembles that of comparable natural wetlands is a function of the probability of propagules of wetland species reaching reflooded wetlands and how

Bioassay Analysis using R Christian Ritz

We describe an add-on package for the language and environment R which allows simultaneous fitting of several non-linear regression models. The focus is on analysis of dose response curves, but the
