Mark Conboy and Adele Crowder have contributed a checklist of the trees, shrubs and vines of the region centered on the Queen’s University Biological Station. It may be found | here |. With this addition we now have a remarkable of checklists (spanning lepidopterans to ferns) mostly co-authored by Mark. In the near future we hope to add mammals. I also hope that we can get a first pass list of the non-woody flowering plants soon.

New fern checklist for the Biological Station available.

Mark Conboy (Queen’s University) and Jim Pringle (Royal Botanical Gardens) have assembled a very nice checklist of the pteridophytes of the Queen’s University Biological Station. It can be accessed | here |. This is one of many contributions that Mark has made (in collaboration or solely-authored) and his efforts are immensely appreciated.
