salvinia minima temperature

Mats of S. molesta (referred to hereafter as salvinia) impede access to and use of waterways for commercial and recreational purposes and degrade waterside aesthetics (Fig. Sepik River Societies: a Historical Ethnography of the Chambri and their Neighbors. It is occasionally abundant on small waterhyacinth plants, feeding within inflated leaf petioles (Knopf and Habeck, 1976). Under extremely hot conditions adults shelter in the water with their heads exposed (Thomas, 1980). This species was introduced into Australia for biological control of both S. molesta and P. stratiotes (Sands and Kassulke, 1984). However, the decline of the weed at this location has been attributed to other factors such as nutrient stress on the weed (Mitchell and Rose, 1979; Marshall and Junor, 1981). Amer. Salviniaceae. and Salvinia natans, J. Exp. In Florida, it is most commonly found on waterlettuce but also is present on A. caroliniana and S. minima. Samea multiplicalis was originally described from Brazil where it was observed feeding on waterhyacinth. New plants form when older plants break apart due to senescence or damage (Room, 1983). Aquatic Botany 23: 127-135. Thomas. Biological Control of Weeds. Salvinia Minima Care Level: Easy Water Conditions: 6.0-8.0 pH Lighting Requirements: Medium Temperature: 60 to 84 °F (15-29 °C) Maximum Size: 10.2cm (4 Inches) ===== This plant is very popular as an ornamental plant, and is often found in both ponds and aquariums. Azollaceae consists of the single genus Azolla. Ecological damage. Development rate is dependent on temperature and the nutrient status of the host plant, larval development taking 13.4 days at 31ºC on ‘high’ nitrogen plants. Room, P. M. 1990.

In the field at Lake Kariba, where the mean annual temperature was 24 to 28ºC, it was estimated that P. acuminata could complete three generations per year (Thomas, 1980). Trends      in Ecology and Evolution 5: 74-79. Proceedings of the Entomological Society      of Washington 88: 303-312. In water with 10% of the salinity of seawater (4,800 µS/cm), growth was reduced by 25% (Divakaran et al, 1980); at 20% salinity, growth was very slow; while at 30%, plants died after 30 minutes exposure (Room and Julien, 1995). It is widely distributed throughout warmer regions of North and South America. Life-cycle studies on Paulinia acuminata (De Geer) (Orthoptera: Pauliniidae)      with particular reference to the effects of constant temperature. 1983; Kay & Hoyle 2001).” Aquatic Weeds in Australian Inland Waters. Internodes are short with large heart-shaped, or oblong and deeply keeled leaves up to 60 mm in width when fully opened. This will provide a means of identifying Salvinia species should any new invasions occur in the United States or elsewhere. Salvinia is a free-floating aquatic fern with a horizontal rhizome just beneath the water surface (Bonnet, 1955; Room, 1983). Growth rates of Salvinia molesta Mitchell with      special reference to salinity. Hedwigia 74: 257-284. It has never been observed attacking plants other than Salvinia species in the field in South America, including those that grew in association with S. molesta such as water fern (Azolla sp. 1990. Aquatic Botany 40: 27-35. Common names are from state and federal lists. Exposure to temperatures below –3°C or above 43°C for more than two hours kills salvinia (Whiteman and Room, 1991). They feed initially on ‘roots’ in or on the small buds, and later inside rhizomes, completing three instars in approximately 23 days (Forno et al., 1983). Finlayson, C. M., T. P. Farrell, and D. J.

Morphogenesis of the floating leaf. At this time the true identity and the native range of S. molesta were not known. This weevil was known to feed on various South American Salvinia species and had been used unsuccessfully as a biological control agent for salvinia during the 1970s (Julien and Griffiths, 1998).

During 1999 it was found in ponds and rivers in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Mississippi, and Oklahoma (Jacono et al., 2000; see also Jacono’s web site). 6). Mats of salvinia can grow in water bodies with conductivities ranging from 100 µS/cm to 1,400 µS/cm (Mitchell et al., 1980; Room and Gill, 1985). Moths prefer to lay eggs on undamaged salvinia plants with high nitrogen content (Taylor and Forno, 1987). Regardless, sporocarps are common among the submersed leaves of large plants. Due to its buoyancy and mat-forming abil-ities, it is spread by moving waters. collected from different salvinia species may provide insights to the taxonomy of this group and their associated host ranges. Journal of Applied Entomology 106:     518-526. Growth can be increased in high light intensities. Twenty-five phytophagous or possibly phytophagous species have been recorded from S. molesta, compared to 49 species from the four species of the S. auriculata complex. In the United States, S. molesta is a new problem so evaluations are premature. Bennett, F. D. 1975. There are three species of Azolla – Azolla caroliniana Willdenow, Azolla mexicana C. Presl, and Azolla filiculoides Lamarck – that are native to North America (Lumpkin, 1993). Chater. is a water fern found in Florida waters, usually associated with Lemna and other small free-floating species. Salvinia molesta was given recognition as a species in 1972 (Mitchell, 1972) and is grouped within the Salvinia auriculata complex, together with Salvinia auriculata Aublet, Salvinia biloba Raddi, and Salvinia herzogii de la Sota (Mitchell and Thomas, 1972).

Biology and Ecology of Key Natural Enemies, Salvinia weevils, Cyrtobagous salviniae and C. singularis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), The genus Cyrtobagous Hustache was originally thought to be monotypic, containing only the species C. singularis. Weevils in the genus Cyrtobagous were first recorded from the United States in Florida at the Archbold Biological Station (Highlands County) in 1962 (Kissinger, 1966). In mixed cultures, they found that Lemna gibba and Salvinia natans were able to actually thrust aside Spirodela polyrhiza and Lemna minor. 1985. Some edge fishing may be available. 1995. On salvinia, temperature and plant quality interact to determine rates of insect growth, number of larval instars, fecundity, and survival (Taylor and Sands, 1986; Taylor, 1984, 1988, 1989). Salvinia minima Baker, the only other Salvinia species present in the United States also is exotic and can be distinguished by the presence of divided hairs on the abaxial leaf surface that are spreading and free at the tips (Fig. National pest management strategy for noxious weeds. 196-217. Nature 320:      581-584 331-335. Discovery of the native range of S. molesta in the late 1970s allowed surveys for natural enemies to concentrate on the target weed. Unlike C. salviniae, whose larvae feed internally, those of C. singularis feed on the outer surfaces of submerged buds, rhizomes, and petioles. Population densities of C. salviniae are capable of reaching 300 adults and 900 larvae per m2, levels estimated as necessary for control (Room, 1988, 1990; Room and Thomas, 1985). 5. The rate of growth of Salvinia molesta [S. auriculata Auct.] Releases of C. salviniae from S. molesta in southeastern Brazil were made first in Australia in 1980. 5) and in some temperate climates (Fig. But it is that attractiveness as hobby plant that has helped them spread as people empty their aquariums or transport the plants for sale. Leaf temperatures that exceeded 40°C and sometime approached 50°C for the hottest parts of days did not obviously affect growth, but water temperatures remained below 40°C and probably acted as a heat sink for the plants (Storrs and Julien, 1996). Newly emerged larvae (1 mm) are white. The "root" is a modified leaf that looks and functions like a root (Croxdale 1978, 1979, 1981). I. Forno, I. W. and K. L. S. Harley. 1986.

Taylor, M. F. J. 1986. Mitchell, D. S. 1979. Common salvinia leaves are typically about half the size of giant salvinia leaves (Figures 3 and 4). Densities from as high as 2,500 large tertiary form ramets per m2 (in nutrient-poor water) to 30,000 small tertiary form ramets (in nutrient-rich waters) have been noted. Canberra, Australia. Impact of Introduction: During earlier stages of colonization Salvinia minima demonstrates exponential growth rates (Gaudet, 1973), which may be just as high as those of Salvinia molesta. At low levels of nitrogen leaves are larger, ‘roots’ longer, sporocarps occur more frequently, and rhizome branching is reduced (Room, 1983; Julien and Bourne, 1986; Room, 1988; Room and Julien, 1995).

Pupation occurs in a cocoon (2 x 2.6 mm), which is woven from ‘root hairs’ and attached underwater to the ‘roots,’ rhizomes or leaf bases. The floating leaves are round and measure 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in diameter, with a distinctive rib creating a bowl shaped appearance. 1. Salvinia is 95% water by weight and biomass of living shoots can exceed 600 g/m2 of dry weight, while biomass of living and dead shoots and ‘roots’ may exceed 1,600 g/m2 of dry weight or 400 t/ha of fresh weight (Room and Julien, 1995).

Calder and Sands (1985) later classified the Florida specimens as C. salviniae, but noted that the C. salviniae from S. minima in Florida were significantly smaller than those from S. molesta in Brazil. Marsilea quadrifolia, a native of Europe and Asia, is introduced and M. ancylopoda is extinct, so only eight native species remain. 9. Room, P.M. and P.A.

University Press, Cambridge, pp. The table contains hyperlinks to collections tables of specimens based on the states, years, and drainages selected. It has since become established in India (Cook and Gut, 1971), Australia (Room and Julien, 1995), Papua New Guinea (Mitchell, 1979), Cuba, Trinidad, Guyana, Columbia (Holm et al., 1979), South Africa (Cilliers, 1991), Botswana (Edwards and Thomas, 1977), Kenya, Zambia (Mitchell and Tur, 1975), Namibia (Forno and Smith, 1999), Madagascar (Room and Julien, 1995), Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire (M. Julien, pers. Habitat: Shallow backwaters of bayous, lakes and ponds, oxbows, ditches, slow flowing streams, cypress swamps and marshes. Croxdale, J. G. 1979. Journal of Ecology 17: 349-365. 1987. Dickinson, M. B. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Science (Plant Science) 89:      161-168. Kissinger (1966) considered the Florida weevils to be C. singularis, but this was before C. salviniae was recognized as a separate species. The natural enemies of S. molesta and the related species in the S. auriculata complex are listed in Forno and Bourne (1984), including species collected by Bennett (1975).
