With my group, I observed vascular plants around Mont-Royal Park.
One of my observations included the curled dock (rumex crispus). One of the unique adaptations of the curled dock is that it has antioxidant, laxative and astringent (meaning that it can shrink body tissue) properties. For this reason, the curled dock can be a helpful plant when used to reduce constipation.
One adaptation all vascular plants have in common is that they all possess a xylem. A xylem is a tissue in a vascular plant that transports water and nutrients to other parts of the plant and can be used for storage.
The species I chose to observe in the OneZoom was the Eastern Hemlock. The eastern Hemlock is a eukaryote and its scientific classification is the following:
Kingdom: Plantae
Clade: Tracheophytes
Division: Pinophyta
Class: Pinopsida
Order: Pinales
Family: Pinaceae
Genus: Tsuga
Species: T. canadensis
