The hooded pitcher plant, Sarracenia minor, is an important member of bog and seepage savanna communities of the southeastern United States. Unfortunately these wetland communities have been damaged and are disappearing at an alarming rate. The goal of this study was to collect baseline data, which will be ultimately used to develop a model of the survivorship, growth rate, morphology and population dynamics of four populations of Sarracenia minor. The model will assess the effects of several environmental factors on changes in the morphology and population dynamics of S. minor on the UNF campus. Measurements on the survival, growth and morphology of S. minor from four populations were collected monthly. In addition, population-level changes in survival and recruitment were also monitored monthly using permanent field plots.
