Limestone barrens are perhaps the most unusual landscape in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In exposed coastal sites, on cliffs, and talus slopes, the calcium-rich bedrock inhibits the growth of trees and shrubs, and the lack of competition allows many species of arctic and alpine plants to thrive. Some of these are the rarest plants in the province, and in Canada. They live in a habitat that, when you look closely, is not barren at all. This book contains information about 300 species of insects, birds, mammals, fungi, lichens, ferns, wildflowers, trees, and shrubs that live on and around the limestone barrens. Containing 767 colour photographs, colour maps, and tables, it also examines the geology, the landforms, and the fossils of the barrens, and offers tips about the best sites to visit, about rare species, and about conservation efforts.
