Ongoing Current Other State Conservation Agencies, USFWS Regional Office 5 Management: Habitat Maintenance and Manipulation Internal Field Assistance Plus $1000/yr for FY 96-98. 6.3-1 Two northeastern bulrush sites that were treated in 2011 were monitored for treatment effectiveness. Treatment included EZJecting and girdling/painting trees around perimeter of bulrush sites with herbicide (glyphosate and imazapyr) to reduce shading of the bulrush populations. Glyphosate is less effective than imazypyr in killing shade trees. Ongoing Current Labor type not yet selected Work type not yet selected More aggressive treatment of trees is needed at these sites to reduce heavy shading of bulrush populations. No response of the bulrush populations has been noted, but treatment of trees was rather conservative, so further treatment may be needed to increase light levels to the bulrush populations.

Results to date: 1) There is a fair amount of genetic diversity across the range of S. ancistrochaetus, with the New England and southern populations having the largest differentiation; 2) There is little diversity within a pond or within a complex of ponds, suggesting sexual reproduction is low; 3) There is some gene exchange between sites, but very little generally, with some evidence of isolation by distance; 4) There is evidence of introgression (e.g., hybridization) between S. ancistrochaetus and S. silvatica in New England populations.
