The magnificent Azorella compacta may look odd as hell, but this matter Seussian "rug" form is actually quite common among Alpine plants - plants from very high elevations or very high latitudes. It is the result of natural selection in high, dry environments and can be found among many unrelated species in various plant families such as Thylacospermim caespitosum (Caryophyllaceae) & Donatia novae-zealandiae (Stylidiaceae) from Tasmania.
Your contributions support this content. It sounds clichéd, but it's true. Whether it's travel expenses, vehicle repair, or medical costs for urushiol poisoning (or rockfalls, beestings, hand slices, toxic sap, etc), your financial support allows this content to continue so the beauty of Earth's flora can be made accessible to the rest of us in the degenerate public. At a time when so much is disappearing beneath the human footprint, CPBBD is willing to do whatever it takes to document these plant species and the ecological communities they are a part of before they're gone for good.
