Columbia, Missouri Ecological Services Field Office Biologist Dr. Paul McKenzie recently had a national status assessment on Hall’s bulrush (Schoenoplectus hallii) published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (formerly Sida).

The published assessment is a revision to an unpublished Service report completed in 1998. The assessment was co-authored by Dr. S. Galen Smith of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and Dr. Marian Smith of Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville. The manuscript appeared in the Aug 10. 2007 issue.  The complete reference is:
