A Hydrological Model for Predicting the Effects of Dams on the Shoreline Vegetation of Lakes and Reservoirs
/ The species richness of shoreline vegetation of unregulated lakes in Nova Scotia, Canada, is known to increase as a function of catchment area, a topographic variable governing water levelExpand
GEOGRAPHICAL DISTRIBUTION AND ECOLOGY OF
Scirpus longii is a rare coastal plain plant traditionally regarded as a New Jersey Pine Barrens species. It had been known from only one site in Canada, in Nova Scotia, until it was recognized inExpand
Prediction of Rarities from Habitat Variables: Coastal Plain Plants on Nova Scotian Lakeshores
Predictive models relating species richness of rare plants to measured habitat variables were developed using data from the shoreline vegetation of lakes in southwestern Nova Scotia. These lakesExpand
Disjunct Atlantic coastal plain species in Nova Scotia: Distribution, habitat and conservation priorities
Abstract Nova Scotia supports some of the rarest Atlantic coastal plain plant species in Canada. Concentrations of these species are found in two regions; the Tusket and the Medway River systems.Expand
The paradox of berry production in temperate species of Vaccinium
Vegetative cover, fruiting phenology, and seed production was estimated from six Vaccinia heathlands on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland so that the efficacy of the Vaccinium seed bank could beExpand
Geographical distribution and ecology of Long's bulrush, Scirpus longii (Cyperaceae) in Canada
Scirpus longii is a rare coastal plain plant traditionally regarded as a New Jersey Pine Barrens species. It had been known from only one site in Canada, in Nova Scotia, until it was recognized inExpand
Longevity of experimentally buried seed in Vaccinium: relationship to climate, reproductive factors and natural seed banks
Summary 1 The fleshy fruited species of Vaccinium are known for their spatial dispersal ability but have generally been found to have poor representation in soil seed banks. 2 A buried seedExpand
Lakeshore diversity and rarity relationships along interacting disturbance gradients: catchment area, wave action and depth
Diversity patterns of riparian plant communities have been associated with disturbance. Populations of a diversity of Atlantic Coastal Plain plants occur as disjuncts on shores of large catchmentExpand
Breeding system and early stage inbreeding depression in a Nova Scotian population of the global rarity, Sabatia kennedyana (Gentianaceae)
Abstract The survival of populations of rare plant species may be affected both by total levels of seed production and by inbreeding depression expressed upon self-fertilization. We examined naturalExpand
Genetic Evidence of Introgressive Invasion of the Globally Imperiled Scirpus longii by the Weedy Scirpus cyperinus (Cyperaceae) in Nova Scotia
Abstract Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to determine whether populations of the global rarity Scirpus longii (Long's bulrush) are vulnerable to loss by introgression ofExpand
