Project Overview

Identify alpine vegetation and determine percent cover on 4 high elevation transects; examine Diapensia lapponnica on the summit of Mt. Mansfield to determine if this highly cold tolerant plant has been affected by climate change.


Identify vascular plant species on high elevation transects; examine and measure three well-defined subpopulations of D. lapponnica on the summit of Mt. Mansfield; compare the populations for two consecutive years; and assess the widely scattered research into the taxonomy and life history of D. lapponnica
