This literature review was done on an informal basis; this was NOT an exhaustive search of resources, papers, journal articles and other documents. Rather, readily available representative examples of research that have been completed on various aspects of Nitellopsis obtusa were reviewed and documented in Zotero, a bibliographical document management tool. The intent of this work is to make some of the valuable research that has been done more accessible to community level stakeholders and citizen scientists through this summarized format. Brief notes were added by FLI staff reflecting thoughts on what areas of research are still needed, the emphasis of a given paper, consensus of various research areas and the like.
