October 1, 2011

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The Braun’s rock-cress is a strange-looking little plant with star-shaped hairs covering its stems and leaves.

The peculiar plant is only found in two areas of the world, and in the mid-1990s, it was listed as a federally endangered species.
