Due to these inhospitable edaphic conditions, serpentine soils are typically home to a very specialized flora. Although much is known about the serpentine flora, almost no research has investigated the arthropods of serpentine areas. In this study, we sampled the arthropods associated with Streptanthus polygaloides (Gray), a Ni hyperaccumulator, and… CONTINUE READING
