newly discovered bamboo species
A fascinating discovery has been made in Alabama, as a new bamboo species called Tallapoosa Cane, or Arundinaria alabamensis, has been identified by Jacksonville State University Biology Professor Jimmy Triplett. This finding has brought the total number of native bamboo species in Alabama to four, making it the state with the highest number of native bamboo species in the United States. The research on this new bamboo species has also been published in the renowned international science journal, Phytotaxa. This discovery not only adds to Alabama’s rich biodiversity but also sheds light on the history, ecology, and genetics of native bamboos in the Southeastern United States.
