Date: 2015-06-01
Locality: United States, Michigan, Oakland, Long Lake Fen
42.76322  -83.56055
Elevation: 287 meters (941ft)
Habitat: Very long heterogenous fen with marked spots of high diversity and other large weedy zones. Fen elevated on norther and southern margins and depressed near central lakes (2). Bordered on north by woodland as well as on southern edge, but southern edge has a railroad and nearby row-crop agriculture. Typhaspp. appear to be heavily impacting fen. In shrubby transition zone in northern portion of fen to the immediate north is high-quality Poweshiek habitat with Muhlenbergia richardsonis, Muhlenbergia glomerata, Rudbeckia fulgida, Dasiphora fruticosa, Schizachyrium scoparium, and Eleocharis elliptica. Other species include Liatris spicata, Packera paupercula, Solidago ohioensis, Cladium mariscoides, Parnassia glauca, Hypoxis hirsuta, and some Toxicodendron vernix. Frangula alnus is invading the area and should be removed. Area very promising for Poweshiek.
