Such knowledge becomes especially important when the manipulated bulbiferous
plant is a rare and endangered species and the bulbs are being salvaged and transplanted as part of a mitigation process.
Prominent among these are: potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas L.), enset (Ensete ventricosum (Welw), Cheesman), godere (Colacasia esculanta L.), yams (Dioscorea spp.), Ethiopian dinch (Coleus parviflorus), koteharrie (Diaspora bulbiferous
), and anchote (Coccinia abyssinica).

Semelparous (reproducing in a single episode) rosette-forming herbs include monument plant (Frasera speciosa) and scarlet gilia (Ipomopsis aggregata); iteroparous (repeatedly reproducing) herbs range from ephemeral bulbiferous
species (e.g., Claytonia lanceolata, Delphinium nuttallianum) that flower and disappear from above ground soon after snowmelt, to vegetatively persistent species (e.g., Potentilia pulcherrima, Erigeron speciosus, Helianthella quinquenervis) whose aboveground tissues remain active throughout the summer.
