Provisional List of Vascular Plant Species in Point Pleasant Park, Nova Scotia

 

An initial list was contributed by Rich LaPaix, based on his MSc thesis research on vegetation structure and composition within urban parks of Halifax Regional Municipality. [1]  Additional species were added from lists in cited references. The scientific names and species ranks (Sranks) are those cited by the Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Centre for Nova Scotia (http://www.accdc.com/Products/ranking.html)

 

The list will be updated as more information becomes available. Please forward pertinent information to David.Patriquin@Dal.ca

 

For the species on this list, all species with an Srank of  “SNA” are exotic to North America.   -  David Patriquin, May 3, 2012.
