an investigation on the plasticity of Sarracenia purpurea's prey capture traits

Project Overview
Research Core Areas: 
Project Abstract: 
It is known that bogs are nutrient deficient which have pushed plants living to evolve techniques for obtaining these nutrients, such as prey capture. Pitcher plants, such as Sarracenia purpurea found in bogs in northern US and parts of southern Canada, have adapted a different leave morphology allowing for prey capture to help obtain nutrients such as nitrogen. Wet nitrogen deposition predicted by the A1FI scenario for northern US was simulated in Mud Lake bog, Pellston, Michigan.
