(1) They nest on the ground, among sedges or grasses close to water.(2) Botanical species in this ancient ecosystem included sagebrush, bluegrass, sedges , and herbs.(3) For example, at Magela Creek, northern Australia, hydrophilic palms and mangroves proximal to the waterhole give way to fire-prone sedges , grasses and paperbark on the dry floodbasin.(4) Soras eat seeds from smartweeds, sedges , and grasses.(5) The precise detail in illustrations of flowers and seeds of sedges and rushes are a valuable aid with their identification.(6) The herbaceous vegetation would have been rich and diverse, including, for example, cattail, buttonbush, numerous sedges , grasses and rushes, and bushy willows and alder.(7) Mallards are omnivorous, eating seeds, stems, and roots from a variety of aquatic plants, especially sedges , grasses, pondweeds, and smartweeds.(8) Plant matter usually consists of the seeds of grasses, sedges , and pond-weeds.(9) The cover of ferns, woody plants, and sedges was excluded from our analysis because their average covers were extremely low and most plot values were zero.(10) I've planted cannas, water lettuce, nymphaeas, sedges , and waterlilies in my water gardens.(11) There's the blue and white of bluebells and wood anemones, celandines and sedges , orchids, and especially good ferns.(12) Marl prairie is a relatively diverse floristic association dominated by grasses, sedges , and rushes growing on thin limestone soils that are seasonally flooded.(13) Some of the smaller plants that grow here are fire snag, wild rose, Labrador tea, bearberry, sedges , eriacaceous shrubs, cottongrass, moss, sphagnum moss, feathermoss, bog cranberry, and blueberry.(14) Also present are bog asphodel, deer grass and sedges such as slender sedge and bog sedge.(15) While most sedges possess triangular stems, its stem is round in cross section.(16) Dry grasses and some sedges cover the meadow during the dry season (March-July) when I conducted this study.
