New England Plant Communities

For a relatively small region, New England boasts an astonishing variety of plant communities, ranging from freshwater and tidal wetlands to coastal dunes, grasslands, forests, and montane. We study the dominant canopy, structure, range, and characteristic species of each community and then apply this knowledge in the field. You will learn how soil, topography, moisture, geological conditions, glaciation, and historical use affect the vegetation of each community.
