OUR EXPERT ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS QMY bromeliad
is producing baby plants.
had an average height (root base to shoot tip) of 76.22 cm and an average of 0.862 [m.sup.2] of foliar cover.
Field observations since 2010 have not indicated any reduction in damage caused to bromeliad
populations by the weevil, even in the most northern part of the bromeliads
were located at heights between 1 and 3 m above the ground level.
Leaves intercepted by bromeliads
become an important energy and matter resource for invertebrate communities (Maloney and Lamberti, 1995; Yanoviak, 1999) and the plant itself (Ngai and Srivastava, 2006).
The presence of arthropods in tank bromeliads
has long been recognized (Picado, 1913; Paoletti et al, 1991; Gomez, 1977; Cotgreave et al., 1993).
The aim of this study was to physiologically characterize the bromeliads
Nidularium campo-alegrense Leme and Aechmea ornata Baker, as for the quantification of starch, carbohydrates, carotenoids and chlorophyll content, and density of trichomes and stomata; important physiological parameters in the analysis of plant metabolism.
Many of the massed red and green bromeliads
came from after-Christmas sales of Selby Gardens' holiday bromeliad
create microhabitats for nesting, reproduction, and food acquisition for many species including arthropods, amphibians, and mammals (Silverstone, 1973; Wittman, 2000; Ditgen et al., 2007).
One of the purposes of the BSI (that means you, the members--there is no one else involved) is to promote and maintain interest in the preservation of bromeliads
. We now have a "conservation fund" set up, in 2008, to which you have been invited to contribute:
