This website, created by Dr. Aimlee Laderman, is dedicated to the knowledge and awareness of Atlantic White Cedar (AWC) Swamps. It includes an image of Atlantic White Cedar and links to two online resources: The Ecology of Atlantic White Cedar Wetlands: A Community Profile; and AWC Flora: Flora Associated with Atlantic White Cedars. The Community Profile describes the AWC and the bogs and swamps it dominates or co-dominates throughout its range. Topics discussed include interrelationships with other habitats, putative origins and migration patterns, substrate biogeochemistry, associated plant and animal species, and impacts of both natural and anthropogenic disturbance. The AWC Flora is a database that records the taxonomy, accepted scientific and common genus, species, and family names; synonomy, habit, habitat types, and the states in which each species is known to have been found in AWC wetlands. Filemake Pro is needed to view this resource.
