Clustered Bluets
Oldenlandia uniflora L.

Threats [-]
Some ponds have seen too much development along the shoreline which threaten populations with direct disturbance by trampling and ATV use. The invasion of Phragmites is also a threat to a few populations.

Conservation Strategies and Management Practices [-]
The pondshores need to be protected from direct disturbance by ATVs and excessive trampling. Exotic invasive species must be prevented from colonizing the shores and present populations must be eliminated. A natural buffer of at least 200 feet should be established around the ponds to prevent excessive runoff and pollution events.

Research Needs [-]
Research into the fluctuating water levels and habitat requirements of this plant is needed to better understand the optimum conditions for its growth.
