John E. Maunder


In 1971, John E. Maunder assisted with the original I.B.P botanical surveys at (among other localities) Burnt Cape [this site not finally submitted as an I.B.P. site!], "Big Brook Barrens", the "Northern Peninsula Barrens" (between Eddies Cove and Watt's Point), and "Table Mountain Plateau" (near Port au Port).

Later, as Curator of Natural History [now retired] at the Newfoundland Museum [now The Rooms Provincial Museum], he continued to collect vascular plants in the "limestone" regions, especially between 1996 and 2003. These collections now reside in the Provincial Museum's Herbarium [NFM]

A member of the Newfoundland Rare Plant Project, the Limestone Barrens Species at Risk Recovery Team (LBSARRT), and the Species Status Advisory Committee (SSAC), John is also the webmaster of both the Newfoundland and Labrador "Digital Flora ..." website, and THIS limestone barrens website.

An all-around naturalist, John has also made extensive collections of land and freshwater molluscs (slugs, snails and clams) in the "limestone" regions.
