Event Description:Event Summary:
Learn about black lace cactus.
Echinocereus fitchii subsp. albertii, also known as Echinocereus reichenbachii var. albertii, is a south Texas endemic. The plant, commonly called black lace cactus, is listed as a federally and state endangered species.
The objectives of this study are to
- survey populations of black lace cactus to determine current occurrence status,
- examine habitat and morphological features of black lace cactus across occurrences, and
- examine the genetics of the E. reichenbachii-fitchii species complex to decipher the closest evolutionary relatives of black lace cactus.
