Abstract

A floristic quadrat study of sparsely wooded plains on western Melville Island was conducted and used to define and describe floristic and structural vegetation types and identify their associated environmental correlates. The results were compared with an existing land-unit survey of the area in order to identify the relative merits of these schemes for conservation planning. Some of the plant communities seem to be unique and require preservation initiatives in the face of current forestry operations and planned horticultural development
