Marcy Woods, the last known Old Growth Black Maple forest on Earth, is a globally-significant natural heritage site. Its need for protection is made even more compelling by the fact that it is also the refuge for the greatest concentration of rare and threatened plant and animal species in the Province of Ontario. This biodiversity record even surpasses the famed Point Pelee National Park, located at the opposite end of Lake Erie.

Ryan,

Do you mean the report I published earlier in the month?

Old Growth Forest Survey of Eastern Niagara Peninsula
Second Phase/ Final Report, a Project of Bert Miller Nature Club and
the Ontario Trillium Foundation by Bruce Kershner

NTS Special Publication #13, March 2012

Or the phase 1 report of the area?

The Phase 1 Report "Old Growth Forest Survey of Niagara Peninsula, Phase 1" was published in 2003. It is available for download here:

Or one of his other books? If so to which one are you refering?

Ed

I misread; it was a report, not a book. Thank you for the links anyways. I've really gotten interested in the Niagara corridor region. I think I'll buy a few of Kershner's books.
