Abstract

A previous report on distributions of "shoreline plants" around the Great Lakes (Guire & Voss, 1963) included the Bird's-eye Primrose, Primula mistassinica Michaux, as a northern species whose distribution southward is largely associated with shorelines. No map was included. The present note will place the local distribution of this attractive and interesting species on record by means of a larger map than the base previously employed, thus calling attention to the northward occurrences, as we have done for another subarctic species, the Black Crowberry, Empetrum nigrum L.
