First major book about Carolinian Canada published
The first major book about Carolinian Canada has now been published. Sweeping from Toronto to Lake Huron and Lake Erie is a region of biological richness unmatched in Canada. Here the native trees have unusual names Sassafras, Cucumber Magnolia, Tulip-tree, Black Walnut, Pawpaw - evoking the distinctly southern character for which the region is named. The Carolinian region is only a quarter of a per cent of the country's total land area, but close to one-third of Canada's rare and endangered plants and animals live here. So does more than a quarter of the country's population. The Carolinian landscape is one of the most threatened in North America. Since 1984 the Carolinian Canada Coalition (CCC) has been bringing together organizations, communities, and individuals to conserve the special places and species of the Carolinian life zone.
