Its rootstocks allow shoots to spread and emerge upslope or down-slope depending on water levels.

More than 61 species of mammals live in Nevada, where most of the land mammals live in the more vegetated areas in northwestern parts of the state. While most of the state has mammals adapted to the dry desert climate, the area around Lake Tahoe and Pyramid Lake has forests and mammals such as the American black bear, beavers, otters, skunks and raccoons.   Open Library is an open, editable library catalog, building towards a web page for every book ever published.
