the annual and perennial species of Dog's Mercury are absent. Accordingly I
repeated in my upland garden in the Tyrolese Gschnitzthal the cultural

Nova Scotia's native plants and their use by humans have been a major factor in

& Nesbitt, The Cultural History of Plants (2005) and also Kochhar's Economic
Botany in ...
