Title: Flora, Fauna, Earth, and Sky: The Natural History of the Northwoods
Url: http://www.rook.org/earl/bwca/nature/
Publisher: Rook, Earl J.S.
Description: This website on the Natural History of the Northwoods was created by Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) enthusiast Earl J.S. Rook. The Flora and Fauna sections are the main features of the site as the Earth and Sky sections are awaiting future development. The Flora section of the site is well organized and extensive, including subsections on Ferns and Fern Allies, Aquatic Plants, Trees, Terrestrial Herbs, and others. Many of the individual flora species link to great photos and detailed information on scientific and common name, taxonomy, description, habitat, and more. The Fauna section offers species indices for Birds, Fish, Mammals, and Reptiles & Amphibians. This site provides links to many other pages relating to the BWCAW as well. Several of the links to other Northwoods natural history sites are not working, but this does not detract from the overall value of this site.
