Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy and Action Plan for Bolander's Quillwort (Isoetes bolanderi) in Canada

Bolander's Quillwort is an endemic aquatic pteridophyte (fern ally) of mountainous landscapes between southern Alberta and northern Arizona - New Mexico, centered on the Intermountain Region of the United States. It occurs locally, growing in circumneutral, relatively sterile substrates, sometimes in considerable abundance, in higher elevation pools and streams. It typically occurs in shallow water (< 2 m) but plants can also withstand periodic emergence. High water quality and an absence of competing aquatic vegetation appear to be important to the survival of this and most other North American aquatic quillworts.
