(n.) A plant of the Sedge family (Cyperus longus) having aromatic roots; also, any plant of the same genus.
(n.) Any plant of the genus Carex, perennial, endogenous herbs, often growing in dense tufts in marshy places. They have triangular jointless stems, a spiked inflorescence, and long grasslike leaves which are usually rough on the margins and midrib. There are several hundred species.
(n.) A flock of herons.
(1) Three bacterial isolates, a Pseudomonas sp., a Bacillus sp., and an Arthrobacter sp., commonly isolated from a hummocky sedge-moss meadow at Devon Island, N.W.T., Canada, were selected for further taxonomic characterization and for a study of the effects of temperature and limiting carbon source on growth.
(2) This factor would have been 1200 if lead aerosols had not collected on sedge leaves and circtumvented the tendency by sedge to exclude lead from the nutritive metals it absorbed from soil moisture.
(3) This ratio decreased by an overall factor of 200 in proceeding from rock, to soil moisture, to sedge, to vole.
(4) The plant compound, 6-methoxy-2-benzoxazolinone (6-MBOA), is present in vegetatively growing grasses and sedges and acts to trigger reproduction in other rodent species exposed to short days.
(5) A sedge, Mariscus congestus (Vahl) C.B.Cl., was a useful indicator of Aedes (Ochlerotatus) juppi McIntosh oviposition areas.
(6) B. globosus shows a clear predilection for the sedge Cyperus exaltatus as support for oviposition.
(7) In a market study male turkeys were raised on floor pens containing peat or wood shavings and fed 0, 5, or 10% reed-sedge peat as a diluent of a typical corn-soybean meal mash diet.
(8) Lesser pollens are sorrel, willow, pine, juniper, sedge, lamb's-quarters, wormwood, plantain, and others.
(9) parasitic on four species of wild cereals and two species of sedge.
(10) Larvae were most numerous in areas dominated by arrow-arum (Peltandra virginica) and maidencane (Panicum hemitomon), less so in areas dominated by sedges (Carex spp.)
(11) While gathering sedges or tamarinds, adult males sat in one place longer than others and obtained more food per sitting.
(12) Most of the lead contained in sedge and voles (mountain meadow mice) within one of the most pristine, remote valleys in the United States is not natural but came from smelter fumes and gasoline exhausts.
(13) This finding is consistent with one of the two principal views of grass phylogeny in suggesting that Poaceae and Cyperaceae (sedges) are not closest relatives.
(14) The upper levels, and the shape of the roofs thatched with straw or sedge, are conjecture, so several different styles are being tried out, included thatching over steeper ridges and shallow curved hazel hoops.
(15) Wombats consume grasses and sedges which are often highly fibrous.
(16) The finding, gathering, and preparing of sedge corms and of seeds of tamarind fruit were described in detail.
(17) Clavicipitaceous endophytes (Ascomycetes) are distributed worldwide in many grasses and sedges forming a perennial and often mutualistic association with their hosts.
(18) It was a watery anomaly, a pond in dunes, surrounded by thick tussocks of sand sedge many, many miles from the sea.
(19) The authors feel that friction with clothing or with scrub pads made of sedge (a very common practice amongst mexicans in the bath room) against clavicular protuberances is fundamental in its pathogenesis.
(20) injuring sedge have the haploid number of chromosomes n=18.
