A SURVEY OF THE FALL AND WINTER VASCULAR FLORA OF THE PIKE COUNTY POCOSIN, ALABAMA.

A SURVEY OF THE FALL AND WINTER VASCULAR FLORA OF THE PIKE COUNTY POCOSIN, ALABAMA. James A. Hall, Michael Woods, and Alvin Diamond, Department of Biological Sciences, Troy State University, Troy, AL 36082.

The Pike County Pocosin Nature Preserve is located approximately 6 miles due east of the City of Troy, Alabama. The Preserve consists of 84 hectares of xeric sandy ridges interrupted by deep horseshoe shaped ravines. The ridges support a dwarf oak-lichen community, while the ravines support a varied mesic hardwood forest community. The vascular flora of the Preserve was studied from November of 1999 until February of 2000. A total of 45 species representing 44 genera and 21 families were collected. The largest families were Asteraceae and Poaceae; each represented by 9 species. Funding for this project was provided by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
