DescriptionThe Forest Ecosystem Research and Demonstration Area (FERDA) was established in 1998 adjacent to the Visitor Interpretive Center (VIC) for the Adirondack Park in Paul Smiths, NY, to provide visitors with first-hand exposure to forest management activities and to provide research opportunities for scientists and students at Paul Smith's College. This research note is designed to provide an introduction to the plants found on the FERDA. It is primarily a list of what is where, but it includes an introduction that helps visitors to the area consider how and why different species of plants are found in different parts of the forest. The table of species can be used as a checklist by amateur botanists to keep track of the plants they find or as an aid to identifying plants by limiting the likely species to those listed in this paper.
