About Carex of the World
This LifeDesk currently encompasses the approximately 1700 species of Carex that are not in subgenus Vignea (for the ca. 300 sedges of Carex subgenus Vignea, we have a separate Lifedesk at http://vignea.lifedesks.org). Work presented on this site is supported in part by NSF DEB Award 0743157 to Andrew Hipp (the primary contact for this site) in collaboration with Eric Roalson (collaborating PI). Please email Andrew Hipp with any questions about this site.
