Karyological studies on some taxa of the Asteraceae in Egypt. The achenes (seeds) in the centre of the seed head receptacle, which are cream-coloured and striated and carry a pappus, are shed from the seed head and dispersed by air currents, possibly for some distance with the help of the pappus. Clopyralid is now commonly used to control thistles, although it damages clovers where these are important for herbage production in grazed pastures. Additionally, the root must be severed at least 4 inches (10 cm) below the ground to prevent the plant from regenerating. Slender thistles in pasture: control by grazing management. Achenes 4-6 mm long, tan to brown, sometimes shiny, transversely wrinkled, tubercled above; pappus 10-20 mm long, composed of flat, minutely barbed, white bristles.
