About muskgrass:
Muskgrass is a multicellular macro-alga with cylindrical, whorled branches. It grows in mineral-rich freshwater (ponds, lakes, and rivers). It smells like garlic and is sometimes referred to as "skunkweed". Sporangia are ball-shaped and grow along the branchlets. Muskgrass does not have flowers. It is an important source of food for ducks.
