Stalking Rare Plants

Record #:
North Carolina possesses a diverse natural landscape from long ocean coastlines to the Piedmont and on to the mountains. It is also a state rich in flora with 3,500 species of vascular plants and 350 mosses. Some of these species are rare, partly because humans destroyed or altered their habitats or because they are an endemic species--one that grows in a very restricted range. Mansburg discusses some of these rare or endangered plants and where the grow in the state.
