Family: Cyperaceae
Collector: Clint Pogue   CP200   
Date: 2014-06-20
Locality: United States, Michigan, Jackson, Bayley's Fen
42.1245  -84.2399
Elevation: 289 meters (948ft)
Habitat: Narrow fen at base of Quercus sp. Dominated upland. Water appears to seep out from base of upland and creates tranition/wooded fen zone at base. This occasionally gives way to high quality patches of fen, but much of the fen is overtaken by Lythrum salicaria and Typha spp. Area not likely to persist at prairie fen without management. Alternate due to too much canopy. About 5m south of woodline which includes Larix laricina, Toxicodendron vernix, and Cornus spp. Quadrat in sedge meadow with Carex stricta dominating; T. vernix saplings common. Weedy species include Typha angustifolia, Lythrum salicaria, and Phalaris arundinacea. About 200m west of powerlines.
