Titles in italics correspond to entries in the Threats Assessment Worksheet (Salafsky et al. NatureServe Explorer: An online encyclopedia of life [web application]. Trembling Aspen (Populus tremuloides) is the prevalent tree species, with Balsam Poplar (Populus balsamifera) in moist sites, and Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) on better drained soils (Rowe 1959). Rhodora 113 (945):201-219. Herbicide and insecticide use on utility lines was captured previously. However, development continued only in seeds that became colonized by mycorrhizal fungi (Zelmer et al. Biederman et al. In order for the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid to reproduce, successful pollination by sphinx moths (Sphingidae) is required. 2014. 2004. A lack of suitable disturbance, which enables succession to progress to taller, denser vegetation, is one of the most widespread threats in prairie ecosystems and may cause declines. Native orchids of Minnesota. Platanthera praeclara Wildlife species description and significance Western Prairie Fringed Orchidis an herbaceous perennial with one to occasionally two hairless leafy stems about 40-90 cm tall that develop from a thick fleshy root system and tapered tuber. 2004) and Plebian Sphinx (Paratraea plebeja) (Ashley 2001) have also been documented as pollen vectors of Western Prairie Fringed Orchid in the United States. Westwood. Private landowners may also assist in conservation efforts by allowing the orchid to exist naturally or by properly managing grazing, haying/mowing and burning activities (North Dakota Parks and Recreation 2016). Threats include loss and degradation of habitat for the orchid and its pollinators due to agriculture (conversion to cropland, overgrazing, poorly timed haying), loss of habitat to succession due to fire prevention (encroachment by woody vegetation), extreme weather events (late spring frosts, flooding and drought) due to climate change, road allowance and ditch maintenance activities, poorly timed burns, drainage alteration, illegal collecting, invasive species, urban development, and mineral extraction. 93 pp. Drainage is slow after periods of heavy precipitation. Loss of genetic diversity can accelerate the decline of rare plant populations (Godt and Hamrick 2001). The ridges and swales trend northwest to southeast. (2015) found that flowering rates were highest when the species experienced a combination of warm temperatures in the previous growing season followed by cool, short, snowy winters and wet springs. 2009. Center for Plant Conservation plant profile page for Platanthera praeclara. Jordan, C.R., G.M. A lack of suitable disturbance, leading to a loss of habitat, is one potential threat to Western Prairie Fringed Orchid. Dewar, D. 1996. ex Willd. Mycorrhizal fungi initially infect and occupy the basal cells of the protocorm but become restricted to the parenchyma tissue as the vascular system and shoot begin to develop. Designations are made on native species for the following taxonomic groups: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, arthropods, molluscs, vascular plants, mosses, and lichens. Many tall grass prairie species could be lost because native plants are unlikely to be self-sustaining in the competition with invasive plants (Koper et al. COSEWIC. 1996. Seeds are dust-like and wind dispersed. Some quarter-sections surveyed only have Western Prairie Fringed Orchid in the ditch along the properties due to tilling activities occurring in the fields (Borkowsky pers. Sphinx moths are dependent on mixed forest for habitat (Punter 2000). It will take years for these populations to recover. 2015). Symbiotic Seed Germination and Mycorrhizae of Federally Threatened Platanthera praeclara (Orchidaceae) Criterion B (Small Distribution Range and Decline or Fluctuation), Meets Endangered B1ab(iii)+2ab(iii). 2016. The low rate of persistence of vegetative plants was attributed to their short stature. The rhizome must survive that year without any photosynthetic capacity, and it must produce another bud for the following year. Since 1992, on average, 60 out of the 200 quarter-sections/ditches surveyed in a year have had flowering Western Prairie Fringed Orchid (Borkowsky pers. 1993. Pollinated at night by long-tongued hawkmoths. Trail edges may also provide habitat for this species. Please visit our sponsors. Some plants may remain dormant underground for one or more years relying on their mycorrhizal fungi to provide the plant with nutrition. 36 pp. Zettler, L.W., and K.A. Zelmer, C.D., and R.S. 1953). Volume 26. Their absence may be due to other factors such as low food abundance, high predator abundance, trap locality or meteorological factors (Friesen and Westwood 2013). Western Prairie Fringed Orchidwas first assessed and designated as Endangered by COSEWIC in 1993 and re-assessed as Endangered in 2000. In the northern part of the species' range, known pollinators include the Galium Sphinx (Hyles gallii), the Wild Cherry Sphinx Moth (Sphinx drupiferarum), the Achemon Sphinx (Eumorpha achemon) and the non-native Leafy Spurge Hawkmoth (Hyles euphorbiae) (Fox et al. vi + 101 pp. Species such as Kentucky Bluegrass (Poa pratensis) have had a negative effect on orchid abundance by outcompeting natural prairie species (Wolken et al. Many land managers and agencies consult with Minnesota Biological Survey experts in an attempt to minimize negative impacts to P. praeclara as it relates to their management activities. If this bud is damaged in the interim, or fails to develop, no stem will be produced that year. Vegetative plants are shorter, have 1-3 leaves, and fewer, shorter roots than flowering plants (Wolken 1995). Extensive survey work for this species has been conducted over the past 24 years with annual surveys of flowering plants occurring since 1992. Western Prairie Fringed Orchidis found in seven unglaciated areas of eastern Kansas (south of the Kansas River) on mesic to wet-mesic upland prairies on level to hilly areas covered with a thin, discontinuous mantle of loess; in tall grass prairie or sedge meadows in the swales between dunes in the Nebraska; Sandhills in north-central Nebraska; and wet-mesic prairies and sedge meadows along the floodplain of the Platte River in central Nebraska (U.S. Ottawa. In order to successfully receive nectar from Western Prairie Fringed Orchid, the moth’s proboscis must be longer than 30 mm, 75% of nectar spur length (Westwood et al. An additional non-native species, Spurge Hawkmoth (Hyles euphorbiae),has been confirmed as a pollinator in the United States (Jordan et al. A recovery strategy that identifies the critical habitat to be protected was prepared in order to maintain current population size and ensure the long-term survival (Environment Canada 2006). Smith, S.E. Management can also include maintaining the natural hydrological regime, reducing invasive species, abstaining from or reducing herbicide use and seeding native grasses (North Dakota Parks and Recreation 2016). P. praeclara More is probably known about Platanthera praeclara than most of the listed plant species in the state. Natural Resources Canada. Since 2010, she has been employed by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources as the Senior Species at Risk Biologist. Also, there is an increasing prevalence of an unidentified small black weevil that feeds on the plants (although it is unclear whether predation by this weevil has increased due to anthropogenic activities). Platanthera praeclara (western prairie fringed orchid) was first documented by the John C. Fremont expedition in what is now Wyoming in 1842 (Fremont 1845). In the Sheyenne National Grassland, North Dakota, flowers remain open for approximately seven days (Pleasants and Moe 1993) but elsewhere may last up to ten days; because flowers open sequentially, the inflorescence can produce flowers for up to three weeks (U.S. 2015). Manitoba plants are flowering later than southern populations, and comparisons with rest of range in terms of temperature tolerance may not be appropriate. J.A. Honey, J., and B. Oleson. Historical collections from Douglas, Faribault, Freeborn, Fillmore, Goodhue, Hennepin, Houston, Kandiyohi, Martin, Nicollet, and Nobles counties are presumed to represent extirpated populations. In the summer of 1988, ditch clearing destroyed 20 plants (Johnson 1989). nylon mesh bags only yielded Stage 2 protocorms following in situ incubation for. The water table is at a depth of 0-2 m (Canada Soil Inventory 1989). Alexander, B. W., D. Kirby, M. Biondini, and E. Dekeyser. 34:105–110. A number of shoots remain vegetative throughout the growing season. The Manitoba government is working on effectively protecting these lands to restrict activities that would damage or destroy the critical habitat (as listed in the recovery strategy). This was also supported by studies from Sieg and Ring (1995) who found that the density of Western Prairie Fringed Orchid was correlated with surface soil moisture. tall. Oklahoma Natural Heritage Inventory Plant Ranking List (PDF Version; 223 KB). Email correspondence with Bruce Bennett, 2 September 2016. Floral display size and pollination of the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid, Platanthera praeclara (Orchidaceae). Climate change models predict more variable and severe weather events in Prairie Canada (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2001). Platanthera praeclara flowers produce a fragrant scent from the evening into the night to attract pollinators. Kiefer, G. K. 2003. Bjugstad-Porter (1993) isolated Rhizoctonia spp. Thesis, North Dakota State University, Fargo, North Dakota. Sugar concentrations are approximately 25% and similar to most other plants (Fox et al. Other species commonly found in Western Prairie Fringed Orchid habitats in Manitoba are listed in Table 2. Alexander, B.W., D. Kirby, M. Biondini, and E. Dekeyser. It is suspected that one site of a single flowering individual in the southwest edge of the area is extirpated because it has not been seen since 1998 (17 years) despite yearly monitoring. 2003a). Platanthera praeclara is rare because of the widespread conversion of native prairie for agricultural uses (Minnesota’s Remaining Native Prairie). The most obvious distinguishing characteristics of the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid are its slightly larger flowers and less elongated inflorescence. They found evidence of significant but low levels of genetic divergence among subpopulations (mean GST=0.081), and some evidence of inbreeding (average FIS=0.230). Although the use of pesticides was not listed as a threat to the Western Prairie Fringed Orchid initially (Collicutt 1993; U.S. Prolonged flooding and flooding during certain times of year can also have an adverse effect on the species. Generally, the water table is high during the spring to early summer. 1997. Platanthera praeclara will be considered for delisting when sites that include occupied habitat harboring 90 % of plants in each ecoregion are protected at protection levels 4 through 9 (The Nature Conservancy 1996) and managed in accordance with a Service-approved management plan or guidelines. Natural Areas Journal. Is there an [observed, inferred, or projected] decline in number of “locations? Cover with a light layer of soil. long. nylon mesh bags only yielded Stage 2 protocorms following in situ incubation for. There are no records of any additional occurrences in Canada despite extensive efforts to search suspected suitable habitats near the Vita population. Agric. A count of the ovule number per ovary in a P. chlorantha flower revealed 6280 ovules (Neil and 1994), indicating that average seed production per flower is variable and that output per plant may be higher than expected b y Salisbury. 2014. 1) Natural system modification 7.0 - Calculated impact is Medium-low. The last time a large burn occurred was approximately four years ago when there was a large wildfire. However, because the [accessed Oct. 17, 2015]. Seed capsule production in the endangered western prairie fringed orchid (Platanthera praeclara) in relation to sphinx moth (Lepidoptera:Sphingidae) activity. Frost in mid-June 1995 and June 14, 1999 damaged flowers and leaves of Western Prairie Fringed Orchid(Punter 2000) and may have resulted in lower seed capsule production. 2014; Bohl et al. comm. Platanthera praeclara was subsequently listed as endangered under the Species at Risk Act in Canada in 2003 and added to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Red List in 2008. 2015. The population census for Western Prairie Fringed Orchidis conducted by the Critical Wildlife Habitat Program technicians at the Manitoba Tall Grass Prairie Preserve. It was re-examined in 2000 with no change in status. The prairie fringed orchids: a pollinator-isolated species pair. White Cherry Sphinxand Bedstraw Hawkmothpopulations fluctuate annually, are both uncommon in Manitoba and have flight periods that have limited overlap with the flowering time of Western Prairie Fringed Orchid(Westwood and Borkowsky 2004; Westwood et al. Nationally rare species include Rigid Sedge, Small White Lady’s-slipper (Cypripedium candidum), Riddell’s Goldenrod (Solidago riddellii), Great Plains Ladies’-tresses (Spiranthes magnicamporum), and Culver’s Root (Veronicastrum virginicum). Cuthrell, D. L. 1994. Given the threatened status of the species, only up to ca. U.S. Catling, P.M., and V.R. Further to the Terms and conditions for this website, some of the photos, drawings, and graphical elements found in material produced by COSEWIC are subject to copyrights held by other organizations and by individuals. Stockhouse, and Y.B. Patches of surveyed prairie experienced a 37% change to other habitat types, from factors such as encroaching woody vegetation. Pauline K. Catling has been working in the field of biology for the Parks Canada Agency, Bird Studies Canada, and Wildlife Preservation Canada since 2007. We randomly collected 30 seed capsules from the population under a permit from the U.S. The western prairie fringed orchid, Platanthera praeclara (Sheviak & Bowles), is an endangered species in North America, In Manitoba orchids produce lower num bers of seed capsules than more southern populations. In the same area as Johnson’s 1988-1990 survey, capsules were produced by 60% and 44% of flowers in 1994 and 1995, respectively (Dewar 1996). An analysis of seed production, viability, germination in situ and gazing impacts on the western prairie fringed orchid (Platanthera praeclara, Sheviak and Bowles) North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND. The Prairie Naturalist. The Canadian population, discovered in 1984, is considered to be the largest in the world. Prairie Naturalist 38:63-68. 2006. 2018. Nectar volume increases overnight but sugar concentrations remain continuous (Westwood et al. This law governs the taking of orchids, gentians, lotus, trailing arbutus and trillium for commercial horticultural purposes. Prescribed fire can be very useful in managing P. praeclara habitats, but timing is critical. Reproduces only by seed. Wallace, editors. In Minnesota and Missouri, the genera Ceratorhiza and Epulorhiza of mycorrhizal fungi were associated with Western Prairie Fringed Orchid. Seed reserves and early symbiotic protocorm development of Platanthera hyperborea (Orchidaceae) (PDF Version; 1.3 MB). Several sites of P. praeclara occur on publically owned property, on lands owned by private conservation organizations, and on privately owned sites with conservation easements. 1953. Sather, and R. Dahle. Soils within the Garson Soil Complex are non-arable due to excessive stoniness (Ehrlich et al. Additionally, the recent work of Kaur et al. Plants have 4-33 individual flowers in an inflorescence. Germinating orchid seeds develop into protocorms, a mass of cells in which there is little differentiation of tissues but with a recognizable basal and apical region. Using Two Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Methods to Prioritize and Manage Rare Plants: A Case Study. 28th Congress, 2nd Session, Senate Ex. Platanthera praeclara is also protected by Minnesota’s 1930 Wildflower Law (17.23) administered by the Department of Agriculture. comm. Wolken, P.M., C.H. Curtis (1 943) suggested it might take several years for Cypripedium seeds to be transported to a suitable depth in the soil or to be covered up by soil. Seeds were subjected to 0, 8, or 12 wk of cold-moist stratification at 5°C; mean seed viability was 89%. Nectar Robbery and thievery in the hawk moth (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae) - pollinated western prairie fringed orchid Platanthera praeclara. Fish and Wildlife Service. 2011. Fauske, M.O. Department of Botany Herbarium, University of Manitoba (WIN)21 June 1988, M. Ross s.n. Plant the seed one inch below the surface of the soil unless you have small seeds which should be planted no deeper than 1/8 inch. 2016. Frost was reported to have damaged Small White Lady’s-slipper in the Vita area in 2009 and 2012 (COSEWIC 2014). Extreme weather events due to climate change are considered to be the most serious threat over the long term. The effect of the drain on the hydrology of the area has not been studied, but is expected to be adverse especially in periods when precipitation may be lower than average. The report writers visited the Manitoba Tall Grass Prairie Preserve and adjoining area in 2014 and 2015, and observed Western Prairie Fringed Orchidin both years. An important consequence of self-compatibility in plants is that self-pollination can have deleterious effects on plant fitness because of inbreeding.Weconducted a hand pollination experiment under field conditions to measure the magnitude of inbreeding depression associated with self-pollination in the rare western prairie fringed-orchid Platanthera praeclara Sheviak and Bowles. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. were isolated from roots of Western Prairie Fringed Orchidfrom the Vita area (Zelmer 1994; Zelmer and Currah 1995). Photo of a Western Prairie Fringed Orchid plant, showing the stem, leaves (usually five to seven per stem), and creamy-white flowers (which number anywhere from 4 to 33). It is unknown if flowers remain receptive their entire duration. Symbiosis 23:145-155. She works on a broad range of issues, including alvar ecosystems, biological inventories of natural areas, and species at risk surveys. Additionally, Minnesota plays a critical role in collaboration with range-wide research efforts studying P. praeclara. Platanthera praeclara . Prescribed fires are implemented (~6 year rotation) on conservation lands (~60% of the range). The pollination of Merremia palmeri (Convolvulaceae): can hawk moths be trusted? Conclusions The specificity of . There does appear to be correlation with the occurrence of burns and wildfires within the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve with high flowering years following; however, a poorly timed wildfire paired with a drought year could have a very negative effect on the population (Bleho et al. Harris. Development for cell coverage, including new towers is likely, but there is no definite knowledge when or whether it will happen. The close proximity of some plants to a road is shown in Figure 6. 1986. (1999) assumed that water was an important mode of dispersal in the Sheyenne National Grassland. Status report on the Prairie White Fringed Orchid Platanthera leuocphaea in Canada. No – still only one remaining location in Canada. 1989. Fish and Wildlife Service 1996). Surveys have taken place annually since 1992. Is there an [observed, inferred, or projected] decline in number of subpopulations? Land Resource Research Centre, Research Branch, Agriculture Canada, Ottawa, Ontario. 1993. 2011). The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC) assesses the national status of wild species, subspecies, varieties, or other designatable units that are considered to be at risk in Canada. About 12% of flowering plants occur in road allowances (road edges and ditches) in the Vita area. Through nutrient addition, these pollutants can change species composition (Environment Canada 2006). 10% of full seed capsules were harvested in late August in Missouri and mid-September in In Manitoba, frost damage to plants occurs on a regular basis in all months of the year except July (Canadian Climate Normals 1981, 1991). Capsule production is irregular. The threats calculator indicates a high overall threat impact. The seed pods of P. praeclara mature by autumn, at which time they split open and the tiny seeds are dispersed by wind. Borkowsky, C.L. 2004. Monitoring and habitat management programs for the species have been conducted within the preserve since 1992. COSEWIC assessment and update status report on the eastern prairie fringed-orchid Platanthera leucophaea in Canada Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. The Tall Grass Prairie Preserve has a burn regime of every 4-5 years in order to reduce the threat that lack of disturbance poses to Western Prairie Fringed Orchid. 5. Seeds are dust-like and wind dispersed. Canadian Journal of Botany 70:291-300. Biological Conservation 167:316-324. Fish and Wildlife Service to: 1) identify capsule parameters … The USDA plants profile page for Platanthera praeclara. Rhodora 88:267-290. In 1994, only 13% of the flowering plants that survived the 1993 season reappeared in 1994 which is much less than the reappearance rates for the period between 1991 to 1993 (Sieg and Wolken 1999). Koper, N., K. Mozel, and D. Henderson. Plants that remain vegetative throughout the growing season have been observed in Manitoba and elsewhere. Possibly, though the number of mature individuals (flowering plants) undergo extreme fluctuations, and most are believed to die following flowering – the application of extreme fluctuation does not apply to quantitative criteria as the fluctuation of mature individuals is not certain to represent changes in the total population. Honours Thesis, University of Winnipeg, Winnipeg, Manitoba. (2014) consider late spring burns to be harmful as the greatest fire susceptibility occurs during periods of rapid growth. Smreciu, and S. Hambleton. 1994. Platanthera praeclara seeds placed in. No diseases are known to adversely affect prairie fringed orchids (U.S. 2003. The topography of the Vita area gently slopes to the northwest from an elevation of 298 m to 290 m. The surface of the glacial till has been modified by the recession of Glacial Lake Agassiz resulting in a ridge and swale topography west of Vita. Declines do not meet thresholds.
