Academy authority on delta bulrush says 'his' plant could help ease oil spill crisis
Date:6/28/2010

ay in decomposing some chemicals in the oil, thereby reducing the impact of the spill to the delta area.

"Bulrushes are also more tolerant of oil than many other marsh plants. This suggests that the delta bulrush will persist regardless of the oil and continue to stabilize the marshes in the delta," Schuyler says.

Schuyler says it is too soon to estimate how much oil is too much for the delta bulrushes.

"I hope we don't get to find out, but based on my experience, I think these plants can tolerate a lot of oil," he says. If the oil were to cover the plants, Schuyler recommends harvesting them just below the oil line. "This will protect waterfowl from the oil and also will allow regrowth from their basal portions," adding that the bulrush seeds can be removed from the harvested plants and put back into the substrate.
