About this book

Language: French

Flore Nordique du Québec et du Labrador, Volume 3 is the third of four volumes on the flora of vascular plants of northern Quebec and Labrador, from the 54th parallel north to Hudson Strait, from James Bay and Hudson Bay in the west, to Labrador Sea in the east. The book is the result of long-term collaborations between several Quebecois botanists. It brings together knowledge and unpublished data on northern plants from boreal, subarctic and arctic environments.

This volume includes an identification key for all plant families growing in this vast northern region. The morphological characteristics of taxa belonging to 23 different families are described, ranging from Shepherdia to Umbelliferae, including dogwoods, ericaceous plants, gentians, willowherbs, Pedicularis and bellflowers. Botanical descriptions of each taxon are accompanied by photographs of plants and organs showing diagnostic features, plus a distribution map and a comment on the ecology and habitat of each species.

This book will serve as a reference for researchers and students interested in natural sciences, environmental professionals and the informed public who are interested in the plant heritage of Quebec and Labrador.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage est le troisième de quatre volumes consacrés à la Flore des plantes vasculaires des régions nordiques du Québec et du Labrador, du 54e parallèle nord jusqu’au détroit d’Hudson, depuis la baie de James et la baie d’Hudson, à l’ouest, jusqu’à la mer du Labrador, à l’est. L’ouvrage est le fruit d’une collaboration de longue durée entre plusieurs botanistes du Québec. Il rassemble des connaissances et des données inédites sur les plantes nordiques des milieux boréaux, subarctiques et arctiques.

Ce volume comprend une clé d’identification de toutes les familles de plantes poussant dans cette vaste région nordique. Les caractéristiques morphologiques des taxons appartenant à 23 familles différentes sont décrites, allant des shépherdies aux ombellifères, en passant par les cornouillers, les éricacées, les gentianes, les épilobes, les pédiculaires et les campanules. La description botanique de chaque taxon est accompagnée de photographies des plants et des organes présentant des caractères diagnostiques, d’une carte de répartition et d’un commentaire sur l’écologie et l’habitat de chacun d’eux.

Voici un ouvrage qui servira de référence aux chercheurs et aux étudiants intéressés par les sciences naturelles, aux professionnels de l’environnement et au public averti qui s’intéressent au patrimoine végétal du Québec et du Labrador.
