Heather Driscoll, Botany & Mycology 2009 Poster Interviews Molecular phylogeny of the genus Costus (Costaceae). Co-authors: Irene T. Liao, Yizhuo Wang and Chelsea Specht The genus Costus (Costaceae) is a large group of perennial herbs distributed in the moist rainforests of both the New and Old World tropics with its center of species diversity in the neotropics. A genus-wide molecular phylogeny for Costus, including 84 ingroup taxa and two outgroup taxa (Monocostus uniflorus and Chamaecostus lanceolatus), was reconstructed to explore evolutionary trends in floral morphology, pollination biology, and biogeography of the group. The phylogenetic ***ysis is based on two nuclear ribosomal sequences — the internal and external transcribed spacers (ITS and ETS) —and the 23rd intron of the low copy nuclear gene RNA polymerase II (RPB2) from a taxonomically and geographically diverse sample. Parsimony and Bayesian phylogenetic ***yses of the combined data support a monophyletic Costus and corroborate recent hypotheses as to membership and sequence of origin of the major groups within the genus. Neotropical Costus represents a rapidly evolving, monophyletic group, which remains inadequately resolved, while African Costus form a paraphyletic group comprised of several early-diverging lineages each comprised of a few closely related species.
Michele Brower, Botany & Mycology 2009 Poster Session Interviews An Exploration of Chicken Litter-Induced Trace Metal Phytotoxicity in Plants. Co-authors: SR Tuberty, Y Sakamachi and MJ Colgan. The overall goal of this study is to assess the adverse impacts of phytotoxic trace metals from long-term chicken litter application to corn and fescue. Confined animal feeding operations are having a potentially huge economic and environmental impact on local communities. The focus of this study will be the phytotoxic effects of these metals (copper, zinc, arsenic, manganese). This project will address the inherent complexities of balancing management of sustainable rural economic growth and conservation of important natural resources such as fertile bottomland farming soils for generations to come. I propose two main hypotheses: H1: crop plants exposed to supplemented levels (representative of 40-80 years into the future) of metals will exhibit acute and chronic phytotoxic biomarkers of exposure, H2: with continued application of trace metals to farm soils, productivity will be unsustainable in the near future. I will determine the current concentrations of trace metals in the soils of fields amended long-term (20-30 years) with chicken litter. Next I will prepare soil on a local farmland which will be planted with corn and fescue. Observations will be made and recorded throughout the life cycle of the plants. Both acute and chronic assessment techniques will be utilized. Briefly, these measurements include the following endpoints: percent ...

Fungal Reproductive Structures | Biology | Mycology To purchase this program please visit Segment from the program Fungi: Decomposers and Parasites. DVD Description Our Fungi DVD begins by describing hyphae - the filamentous, thread-like fungal cells that intertwine to form interwoven masses called mycelium which are usually only visible when differentiated into ***ual structures such as mushrooms, puffballs, and powdery molds. How fungi obtain nutrients either through parasitic or mutualistic relationships or decomposing dead bodies is examined before looking at their economic, ecological, and health impacts. The major divisions of fungi are then examined and some of the unique adaptations found in kingdom Fungi discussed.
The Puget Sound Mycological Society's 47th Annual Wild Mushroom Show The Puget Sound Mycological Society's 47th Annual Wild Mushroom Show, held at the Center for Urban Horticulture (CUH), University of Washington on October 16-17, 2010 (Video on 10/17, so the mushrooms were in a poorer state). Over 200 species of wild mushroom were on display, beautifully. Noted guests were Taylor Lockwood (Best fungal photographer ever, IMO), Debbie Veiss (Amanitarita), and Dr. Brit Bunyard, editor-in-chief and publisher of Fungi magazine. Go next year if you have the chance, it is well worth the time. Gorgeous mushroom displays, many booths with everything from mushroom kits to mushroom socks, DELICIOUS food by astounding chefs, and fantastic art displays with paintings, sculptures, and even knitted Amanitas! Don't miss it!
Ralph McNeilage, Botany & Mycology 2009 Poster Session Interviews Fertilization timing and pollen tube growth in Nymphaea (Nymphaeales). Co-authors: Mackenzie L. Taylor, and Joseph H. Williams. The progamic phase is the life history stage in seed plants that begins with pollination and ends with fertilization. Investigating progamic phase development in early-divergent angiosperm lineages may provide insights into the flexibility of developmental traits that coordinate the unique fertilization process in angiosperms. Nymphaeales (water lilies) is well suited among early-divergent lineages for investigations of progamic phase biology because it exhibits pollination strategies and flower morphologies that are more diverse than most other basal lineages. The objective of this study was to characterize progamic phase development in Nymphaea odorata, the American white water lily. Hand-pollinations and sequential collections of flowers (5, 10, 15, 30 minutes and every half an hour thereafter until 6 hours after pollination) were used to determine the timing of developmental events between pollination and fertilization. Pollen tube pathway, morphology, and growth, as well as timing of pollen germination and female gametophyte receptivity were documented using light and fluorescence microscopy. Pollen germination occurred within five minutes of pollen reception on a restricted area of the stigmatic surface. Pollen tubes entered the ovary by first growing exclusively through the narrow region where post-genital fusion of the carpel had occurred ...
Rachel Schmidt Jabaily, Botany & Mycology 2009 Poster Session Interviews Evolving towards semelparity in Andean Puya (Bromeliaceae): testing differential investment in reproductive displays. Co-authors Cody Williams and Kenneth J. Sytsma. Semelparity (syn. monocarpy), the life-history trait of senescing after a single, massive ***ual reproduction episode, is relatively rare in long-lived angiosperms. Puya (Bromeliaceae), a large genus of long-lived, terrestrial Andean rosette plants, were found during fieldwork through the Andes to exhibit variability in life history type. The majority of species are iteroparous, producing vegetative daughter rosettes before producing terminal inflorescences. Several species, primarily from high elevations in the wetter northern Andes, often reproduce and die with no vegetative reproduction, and are a placed in a new category here called semi-semelparous. Only Puya raimondii, the largest bromeliad on earth from the high-elevation, drier central Andes, is always semelparous. Semelparous taxa in other giant rosette genera (Yucca, Agave, Lobelia ) have been shown to invest more energy in reproductive displays than close iteroparous relatives. To see if the semi-semelparous taxa are evolving towards true semelparity, photographs of the majority of Puya species in the field were converted into pixels and the ratio between the inflorescence and vegetative rosette area was calculated and compared between iteroparous, semi-semelparous and semelparous taxa. Permutations of these data (eg, exponentially scaled) were ...

John Pascarella, Botany & Mycology 2009 Poster Session Interviews Evidence of Hybridization between a federally endangered plant, Baptisia arachnifera (Fabaceae), and a native congener (Baptisia lecontei) at an ex situ conservation planting. For endangered species, one option to lower extinction risk is to create ex situ populations. However, this may create the potential for hybridization to occur with other native or non-native species. I present evidence that hybridization has occurred between the federally endangered Georgia endemic Baptisia arachnifera and a native congener Baptisia lecontei (native to Florida and south Georgia) at an ex situ planting (Lake Louise Biological Station, Valdosta, GA) approximately 95 miles west of the native distribution. In 2005, four plants were found growing next to adult B. arachnifera that appeared to be hybrids. I used morphological, reproductive, and genetic data to compare the characteristics of these plants. Morphology of the putative hybrids show characteristics of both parental species, although leaf number is uniquely diagnostic. The putative hybrid plants overlapped with both parental species in flowering phenology, shared the same visiting insects, had viable pollen grains, and produced fruits and seeds in cross-breeding experiments. Allozyme data indicate that the putative hybrids have combinations of unique alleles found in the two parental species. Based on three years of data, progeny arrays from B. arachnifera plants indicate that gene flow from either the hybrids or B. lecontei is ...
