    Is there any way of reading the Nature article? When I click on the link above I get asked for a password.

    Fascinating! Thanks for sharing this excellent post on this amazing discovery. Great photos. This is surely more proof that we must do more to protect all ecosystems. So many things yet to learn in this fragile world of ours. I always learn so much from this site. Thanks for all that you do. -C.

    Michael, I suspect the Nature article is currently subscription-only. I’m not sure when it can be made available, but I will ask Sean.
    The interview on the Beeb (and NPR, now, too) – your guess is as good as mine. Sean will let me know as soon as he knows.

    Please, someone tell me that this isn’t Seashore paspalum, and then tell me it wasn’t introduced next to the last free flowing river in Southern California (the Santa Clara river), within one mile of the California coast at the convergence to the Pacific Ocean. Google the Olivas Links Golf Course, Ventura, California, and then Seashore paspalum…

    I wonder if these basal angiosperms have SAM/CAM metabolism like Isoetes? It would be fun to find out. Unfortunately I now work in Thailand and it does not occur here. I have seen Hydatella in ponds in the Sydney area in the Blue Mountains. Did not know what it was. I thought it was an little Isoetes because it was not flowering.
