rare grass

3 August 2010 14:52

Inger Alsos, a plantecologist with whom I studied geese many years ago, is looking for a rare endemic grass, which is only collected once on Spitsbergen: Puccinellia svalbardensis. Together we go searching on Sigirdholmen. It is a quest, but she knows what to search for and finds nine senescing tussocks on a muddy outcrop. Gees would not graze there, so the suggestion for a goose grazing ban is not neccessary. A little bit of the plants is collected for further taxonomic and molecular analysis.
