  • anything for the wetlands ecosystem but they will take up space that might have been occupied by an interactive native wild type Genetic lineage At the heart of the differentiation between native wild types and horticultural specimens is their parental or genetic lineage For a native plants person provenance covers questions of ecoregion and eco niche from which area of which county in which state did the plant come from how long has the stand of related plants existed in the area how did the seed arriveÑon the wind riding the fur of an animal or by human hand and who were the likely parents Sexual reproduction This last question would cover the genetic lineage of the plant and whether uncontrolled sexual reproduction was involved When plants or animals reproduce by sexual reproduction the parental DNA in the gametes the sperm and the ova or egg is mixed and matched so that each offspring is genetically different from either parent and from the other offspring A stand of wild blue lobelia Lobelia siphilitica for example is composed of genetically different plants that together represent the local genotype A white lobelia appearing in a stand of blue ones represents a phenotypic visible reflection of the genetic variability of the stand that is what the stand is capable of producing in this environment The stand evolved by interacting with and adapting to its environment A white lobelia is an accidental product of a wild stand and a genetic rarity Ð something special to enjoy but then let go of It either passes on its genes to future generations or not Wild Ones argues that the natural order of things involves much more than that single plant Ð rather the whole ecosystem that the plant grows in including other plants mammals birds bees
