Northern Ontario Plant Database
Descriptions of northern Ontario species
Trees | Shrubs | Woody Vines/Lianas | Dwarf Shrubs | Herbs (Forbs)
Over one hundred original descriptive webpages have been compiled for the Northern Ontario Plant Database (NOPD) website. These webpages are primarily of species included in Ontario's Forest Ecosystem Classification (FEC) and are intended to assist forestry workers and students in the identification of these species. Click on the thumbnail images to link to a full-page image in a new window. In addition to images scanned from 35 mm slides, many digital images by Derek Goertz, a very talented former AUC student, have been included in the webpages..
New descriptions and images will be added to the website throughout the course of the project.
Photographers of the images and the illustrators can be identified by their initials, included in the copyright information on each image: dg = Derek Goertz, sjm = Susan J. Meades, jem = John Maunder (Newfoundland Museum), rd = Russ Dennison (deceased Sault Naturalist), kb = Ken Baldwin.
