Lichens

The Lichens
Page 370 to 372 of Chapter 18, Botany for Degree Students - Year I, BP Pandey

Definition
A lichen is a plant consisting of two separate plants – a fungus and an alga, so closely associated with each other as to appear a single plant. The algal cells of the association are always enveloped by the fungus. The combined growth of both parterns results in a constant definite form and internal structure of the lichen. This group has about 400 genera...

I really enjoyed walking around and finding so may flowering plants at Hurricane Ridge, WA. I also enjoyed seeing the Blue butterfly.

I found these plants and fungi on my way home from a yard job in a meadow and a roadside ditch close to my home. I got excited when I found the Orchid and the Yampah as they were both first finds for me.

I found these plants and insects at Lake Isabella State Park, WA and at a marsh in the town I live in. I was excited to find the 3 Orchids and enjoyed seeing the butterflies around me as I walked the trails at the park. Also, the Tarweed has an unpleasant odor.

I found these beautiful plants around Belfair State Park, WA, close to the Hood Canal. I have found a couple of them before but realized that the Pepperweed I found was something I saw earlier this year. I recognized the Pepperweed because it is in the Brassica family but didn't know which kind at the time earlier this year.

I had an enjoyable walk around Green Mountain, WA near Bremerton, WA. It was my first time finding both the Burdock and the Wild Mint. I recognized them immediately due to their features and smell for the mint.

I found these observations at the Nestucca Bay Wildlife Refuge and Cape Lookout State Park, OR. When I was at the Wildlife Refuge, I enjoyed the meadow close to the Pacific Ocean and the trails that were filled with lots of foliage and interesting fungi. The most interesting find along the trail was the Dapperling mushroom as there were plenty of them along each side of the path and that they were easily recognizable. When I went to Cape Lookout, the most exciting finds from that walk we...

I had been passing by this plant for a couple of weeks wondering what it was but was unable to stop and find out what it was until this day. I was pleased to find out that it was the Purple Loosestrife, in the Lythraceae Family.

It was my first time going to the Paul Rogers Wildlife Park in Ellensburg, WA. I had a pleasant walk besides the wildfire smoke in the air and saw lots of beautiful plants, most of which had gone to seed. I loved that this park was turned into a nature reserve with it originally being a horse pasture. I saw something dart into the bushes as I walked around a massive Willow tree but couldn't tell which animal it was. I also learned a new plant species called Melilotus which are in the Fab...

I found these plants and fungi close to where my family lives. I was visiting with them when we decided to go on a nature walk and I helped show them the wonders of their own backyard.

I had a very nice walk around Lake Tipsoo in the Cascade Mountains just northeast of Mt.Rainier. Most of the flora had come to pass and go to seed as it was nearing the end of flowering season, but a few plants were continuing to flower. My favorite finds from this walk were both the Monkeyflower and the Arnica. Both flowers were still fresh and very vibrant in color and were still thriving in this Sub-alpine meadow. I recommend driving up there during flowering season to enjoy the full ...

I had a great time finding these fungi, frog and insect at Twanoh State Park in Washington State. It was a relatively quiet walk and comfortable outside. I was filled with joy when I found the two Slime Molds in really good condition as well as seeing the Frog in a nearby creek as well. I had been to this park earlier this year when Spring was starting and found many beautiful plants and fungi then as I did on this day. I really recommend walking around this park in Spring and Fall as yo...

Segundo día de observaciones. 24/09/22

Nos fuimos a un sector llamado Angostura, pasadas las marmoleras, unos kilómetros antes de llegar a San Francisco de Chiu Chiu un antiquísimo poblado indígena colonizado por españoles y que está a 30 km al este de Calama y a 2525 msnm.

El sector del río en que nos quedamos parece un área de ciénagas. Amplios juncales ahora secos, dan muestra de la fuerza del agua cuando llegan las crecidas. No es posible caminar sobre ellos sin hundirse. Se ve que debe ser un buen lugar para la ...

I found these 3 wonderful fungi around a trail system near a nice waterside resort close to my home. Was a nice surprise to see the Ganoderma, fresh and healthy, as compared to other times I have seen it, when it was at the end of its life cycle. It was also my first time finding the Lobster Mushroom and I didn't know at the time that it is edible and has a seafood smell. Perhaps, the next one I come across; I will add it to a seafood dish.

Neoscona

25 September 2022

My last journal entry focused on the most diverse genus of orbweavers: Araneus. It seems right at this time of the year to remain focused on that family since many orbweavers mature in the later summer and early fall.

The genus Neoscona is represented by four species in Minnesota. The common names for these spiders are the Spotted Orbweavers.

N. arabesca is likely the most common member of this genus in Minnesota. ...

Fall Warbler Migration at Cedar Island, NC

In 2019, I observed a mixed flock of migrating warblers on the trail through the Cedar Island Wildlife Refuge.

There had been a cold front that moved through on Oct 13
Oct 14 through 18 there were large numbers of warblers on the refuge (see eBird lists for those days).

Conditions for observing warblers on the Cedar Island refuge appear to be that it is mid-October and a cold front has pushed the birds south to the refuge. I went to the refuge in more recent years bu...

Sea Skaters!

Hi, combers! Did you know that sea skaters in the genus Halobates are the only insect that lives on the open ocean? They are also the only surface life that can move freely on the surface, rather than relying solely on wind or currents. For more information on sea skaters and their amazing adaptations, check out this post I made: https://www.instagram.com/p/Ci8IucEuskl/
