Similarly, sediment movement by the range of overland flows applied was extremely low for cover levels [is greater than] 47%, and it appears that, as a simple rule of thumb, a level of 50% grass cover could be set as a target for stable rehabilitation (at least where stoloniferous grasses are a major component of the vegetation
In the Amazon forest in particular, some species like Lepidocaryum tenue, Iriartella stenocarpa, Wettinia drudei, Bactris bifida or Bactris bidentula can completely dominate the forest understory through a stoloniferous or rhizomatous growth (Henderson, 1995).

Known as American frogbit, this is a floating stoloniferous aquatic that, unlike its European counterpart, Hydrocharis norsus-ranae, does not form overwintering turions and therefore cannot survive in lakes that freeze during winter.
Elodea has relatively simple shoot architecture but is probably reduced: in the other genera, all of which are stoloniferous, the most difficult problems are the interpretation of the complex axillary buds found in the vegetative rosette and in some cases in the stolons, in particular the interpretation of the relationship among the stolon, stolon-containing structures, and the inflorescence.
Putting earlier information from other stoloniferous Hydrocharitaceae (e.
Based on developmental information, there are therefore two rather different aspects of homology involving the inflorescence and vegetative structures in stoloniferous Hydrocharitaceae.
