Bulrush and Reed Species Stock Video Footage


bulrush

Bulrushes is the vernacular name for several large wetland grass-like plants in the sedge family (Cyperaceae). The name is particularly applied to several sedge family genera. The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland recommends "bulrush" as an English name for plants in the genus Typha. These species are also sometimes known as reedmace, cattails or black paddies. One particular famous story involving bulrushes is that of the ark of bulrushes in the Book of Exodus. In this story, it is said that the infant Moses was found in a boat made of bulrushes. Within the context of the story, this is probably paper reed (Cyperus papyrus). Learn more about Bulrush and reed
