Bogs in the Northern Lakes Region of Indiana are characterized additionally by the presence of a distinctive suite of ericaceous shrubs including Andromeda glaucophylla, Chamaedaphne calyculata
, and Vaccinium macrocarpon, along with carnivorous plants such as Sarracenia (Homoya et al.
The authors compared the usage and distribution of two plant species reaching their range limit in different parts of Estonia: leatherleaf Chamaedaphne calyculata
(common in eastern Estonia, Figures 5 and 6) and bog myrtle Myrica gale (common in western Estonia, Figures 7 and 8).
The signature plants of the bogs, Chamaedaphne calyculata
, and the fen, Potentilla fruticosa, were NA positive, whereas Sphagnum spp.
Ceratiola ericoides Michaux Ericoideae Chamaedaphne calyculata
Whereas a Sphagnum-dominated peatland in northern Michigan might be characterized by Carex oligosperma, Eriophorum virginicum, Chamaedaphne calyculata
and Picea mariana, a geologically similar Sphagnum-dominated peatland in central Indiana might be dominated by Dulichium arundinaceum, Toxicodendron vernix and Acer rubrum (Markle, 1916; Cain, 1928).
