Plants in Canadian Cities: A Journal Post by Devin Walker

In Montreal's popular Jeanne-Mance Park, I have observed an abundance of plants. The image linked to this post represents one such observation: a species I believe to be Taraxacum officinale (or the common dandelion) based on OneZoom's descriptions. Taraxacum officinale resides in the Asteraceae family, Asterales order and Plantae kingdom. As my group's project focuses on plants, all of our observations share the ability to photosynthesize. This common adaptation allows the plants to utilize light to produce energy. However, the Taraxacum officinale species (again, linked to this journal post) has a rather unique adaptation of a bright yellow flower. This flower, in attracting bees and other pollinators, allows the species to reproduce through pollination.
