Burdocks on Mont-Royal.

During lab 2, I observed the burdock plant on Mont-Royal. The burdock belongs to the plantae kingdom, the asterales order, the asteraceae family, the carduoideae subfamily, the cynareae tribe, and the arctium genus (Arctium). One special adaptation of the burdock is the hooked tips of the phyllaries that make up the involucre are an adaptation for seed dispersal (Byrd). Although the different species i observed on Mont-Royal vary a lot in their traits, most of the plants share the adaptation of having shallow roots that aid in capturing nutrients from the top soil level (Plant Adaptations).
