Pickeral rush (Pontederia cordata) occupies wetland shoreline. This emergent aquatic, with its leaves and flowers above water and portions of the stem under water, is found typically in shallow, quiet water. The seeds can be eaten like nuts and the young leaf-stalks cooked as greens. Deer also feed on these plants. The common name suggests that this plant, as well as the fish known as pickerel, occupy the same habitat. plant,marsh,wetland,native,bog,swamp,Maryland

Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site Resources and Threats Human impacts to Fort Union Trading Post include loss of native grass species, invasive plants and reduced river flow. Methods such as prescribed fire and the planting of native species have been used to restore and protect the site.

Niobrara National Scenic River Resources and Threats  The Niobrara River is where six major biomes converge to form a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Threats to the river arise from fire exclusion leading to the expansion of ponderosa pine into grassland area, changes in microclimates, the spread of invasive plants and the high volume of visitors during peak periods.

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients
