Ecologists try to save the springs

Published April 24, 2009 - The Famuan
Florida A&M University ecologists are trying to eradicate a harmful parasitic plant at the popular Wakulla Springs tourist attraction.

Williams and his colleague, Rana Athar, are attempting to rid the springs of an unnaturally induced parasitic plant, hydrilla.

He and Athar have tried to kill the invasive plant by identifying bacteria that are present before and after the hydrilla plant blooms.
