New Mexico Day 12

Not much of great interest happened on Monday. We were refreshed after the weekend off. And work went well. I did see some really cool plants

Evolvulus sp. - A really tough little plant. I picked a sprig and left it in the car. After three hours in the hot car, the flowers were still open and fresh looking. Though after 5 hours, they had wilted.

One of our sites this day was a gravel bar - not a lot of structure, but surprisingly, a lot of diversity. If I remember correctly, between the three plots at this site we had over 75 plant species we found.

Pectis sp. - my other favorite plant of the day.
