This research project has two primary objectives. The first, which has been funded for the growing season of 1983, is to furnish a core of basic data essential to proper management. of the historic site. This includes surveys of plants and animals to identify species which currently exist, their relative abundances and distributions, the occurrence of exotic versus native species, as well as, the presence of any rare or endangered species. Plant collections for display and reference purposes will be established. Survey results will be collated into maps presenting the geographic distribution of dominant species and their relative abundance. In addition, we will prepare in cooperation with James Taylor, Superintendent, and his staff a set of management recommendations concerning the natural resources of the site.
