Examples of "pauciflorus"
Almutaster is a North American genus of plants in the aster family containing the single species Almutaster pauciflorus (formerly "Aster pauciflorus"), which is known by the common name alkali marsh aster. It is native to Canada (Northwest Territories and the 3 Prairie Provinces, the Western United States, and northern and central Mexico (as far south as Tlaxcala).
Helianthus pauciflorus, called the stiff sunflower is a North American plant species in the sunflower family. It is widespread across the Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, and the Great Lakes regions, and naturalized in scattered locations in the eastern United States and in much of southern Canada (from Alberta to Nova Scotia).
"Helianthus pauciflorus" is a perennial herb sometimes as much as 2 meters (80 inches) tall, spreading by means of underground rhizomes. Most of the leaves are attached near the bottom of the stem. One plant can produces 1-10 flower heads, each head with 10-20 yellow ray florets surrounding at least 75 red or (less often) yellow disc florets.
Melaleuca pauciflora is a shrub in the myrtle family Myrtaceae, endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. (Some Australian state herbaria continue to use the name "Callistemon pauciflorus".) Its decussate leaf arrangement and its small heads of white flowers on the sides of its branches are diagnostic. This is probably the least spectacular of all the melaleucas.
Melaleuca faucicola commonly known as desert bottlebrush, is a plant in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae and is endemic to the Northern Territory in Australia. (Some Australian state herbaria continue to use the name "Callistemon pauciflorus".) It is a shrub or small tree growing only in protected gorges in the ranges of Central Australia such as the Petermann Ranges and has red, cream or white spikes of flowers.
"Melaleuca faucicola" was named in 2006 by Lyndley Craven in "Novon". It had previously been known as "Callistemon pauciflorus" since Roger David Spencer and Peter F. Lumley first formally described it in 1986 in "Muelleria" from a specimen collected from the "Serpentine Gorge in the Heavitree Range". The specific epithet ("faucicola") is from the Latin "faux" meaning “throat” or "pharynx" and "-cola" meaning "dweller in" referring to the habitat of this species, being in gorge country.
The plant was discovered in July 2015 by Yamashita Hiroaki in lowland forests on Yakushima island. This species is only found at two locations along the Tabu River. Other recent discoveries on this island include: "Oxygyne yamashitae" (2008), "Gastrodia uraiensis" (2015), and "Sciaphila yakushimensis" (2016). This island also harbors various scarce plant species such as "Lecanorchis virella", "Lecanorchis trachycaula", "Yakushimense vexillabium", "Apostoasia nipponica", "Lycopodium sieboldii", and "Lysionotus pauciflorus".
"Almutaster pauciflorus" grows in wet alkaline and saline soils such as inland salt marshes and salt flats. This is a perennial herb growing a reddish-green glandular stem to heights from 30 to 120 centimeters. The narrow leaves are linear in shape and up to 10 centimeters long. The inflorescence is an open array of flower heads containing white to pale purple ray florets and a center of yellow disc florets. The head is lined with phyllaries covered in tiny white resin glands. The fruit is a hairy achene.
In Oklahoma, small groups of scaled quail feed among soapweed yucca and in soapweed yucca-sand sagebrush ranges, weed patches, and grain stubble. Also in Oklahoma, early winter foods apparently eaten when other foods are not available included snow-on-the-mountain ("Euphorbia marginata"), sand paspalum ("Paspalum stramineum"), field sandbur ("Cenchrus pauciflorus"), purslane ("Portulaca" spp.), skunkbush sumac, Fendler spurge ("Euphorbia fendleri"), and leaf bugs. Jimsonweed ("Datura stramonium") and juniper berries were always avoided. Winter foods of the scaled quail in Oklahoma include Russian-thistle and sunflower ("Helianthus" spp.) seeds.
Hippobromus pauciflorus (Afrikaans: Baster-perdepis = False horse urine), commonly known as false horsewood, is a small South African semi-deciduous tree occurring on the margins of forest, stream banks and in scrub forest. Frequently growing as a tall, slender sapling and accordingly prized as wattle for hut-building. Leaves 75 mm to 150 mm long, paripinnate with some 5 pairs of leaflets which are extremely variable in shape, wedge-shaped at the base, entire, dentate or deeply lobed, sessile and winged on the rachis between leaflets. Panicles up to 75 mm long and many-flowered. Fruits are about 8 mm in diameter, black, pulpy and unpalatable. All parts of the tree have an unpleasant odour when bruised. Fourcade describes the wood as "very heavy and hard, very strong, moderately elastic, close-grained ... heartwood brown, sapwood white, tinged with brown, used for wagon-work and other purposes. The wood and leaves contain a strongly scented resinous and oily substance, which renders them readily inflammable." This tree is found along the east coast from the Eastern Cape, through KwaZulu Natal, Swaziland and further inland through the Transvaal up to the Soutpansberg.
The Tongariro National Park is a rough and partly unstable environment. To the north and west of the park, a podocarp-broadleaf rain forest near Lake Taupo stretches over an area of 30 km, and up to an elevation of 1000 m. In this rain forest live Hall's totara ("Podocarpus hallii"), kahikatea ("Dacrycarpus dacrydioides"), kamahi ("Weinmannia racemosa"), pahautea ("Libocedrus bidwillii"), and numerous epiphytic ferns, orchids, and fungi. Pahautea trees can be found further on up to a height of 1530 m, where they cover 127.3 km. On this level, one can also find a 50 km beech forest, containing red ("Nothofagus fusca"), silver ("Nothofagus menziesii") and mountain beech ("Nothofagus solandri var cliffortioides"). Understory species within the forests include ferns such as crown fern ("Blechnum discolor") as well as shrub species. There is also a 95 km area of scrubland, containing kanuka ("Leptospermum ericoides"), manuka ("Leptospermum scoparium"), celery-top pine ("Phyllocladus aspleniifolius"), inaka ("Dracophyllum longifolium"), woolly fringe moss ("Rhacomitrium lanuginosum"), small beeches and introduced heather. To the northwest, and around Mount Ruapehu, between an altitude of 1200 and 1500 m, tussock shrubland and tussock grass covers large areas (around 150 km), consisting mainly of New Zealand red tussock grass ("Chionochloa rubra"), inaka, curled leaved neinei ("Dracophyllum recurvum"), wire rush ("Empodisma minus"), and bog rush ("Schoenus pauciflorus"), as well as heather and grasses like hard tussock ("Festuca novaezelandiae") and bluegrass ("Poa colensoi"). Above 1500 m, the terrain consists of gravel and stone fields and is accordingly unstable. Nevertheless, some plants occasionally settle there, such as curled leaved neinei, snow totara ("Podocarpus nivalis"), mountain snowberry ("Gaultheria colensoi"), bristle tussock ("Rytidosperma setifolium"), bluegrass and "Raoulia albosericea", which cover an area of 165 km. Between 1700 and 2020 m there are some isolated "Parahebe" species, "Gentiana bellidifolia" and buttercups. Above 2200 m live only crustose lichens.
