Atlantic Coastal Plains Flora (ACPF)


A group of 90 species of taxonomically unrelated wetland plants that inhabit lake and river shores, bogs, fens and estuaries. Some of these plants occur nowhere else in Canada, except in Nova Scotia. Eleven of these plants are species at risk, which means that without conservation and recovery efforts they are at risk of going extinct. These 11 plants are legally protected under federal and provincial legislation.
