Date: 1994-07-06
Verbatim Date: 1994-07-06

42.54994148  -89.1272989 +-285m.
Verbatim Coordinates: 42.54994148° N, 89.1272989° W; T01N R12E sec18 SW4NW4;
Georeference Remarks: Latitude/Longitude was derived from the Township, Range, Section location. This causes an imprecision.
Elevation: 244 meters
Verbatim Elevation: 800 ft
Habitat: Fen (surrounded by much more expansive sedge-grass meadow) in tiny ravine-like depression that opens into spring run. Assoc.: Carex stricta, C. sterilis, C. buxbaumii, Eleocharis erythropoda, Sphenopholis intermedia, Lysimachia quadriflora, Zizia aurea,. Pycnanthemum virginianum, Lobelia kalmii, Aster lucidulus, Liatris pycnostachya, and Solidago gigantea. This spot, the most fen-like on the property, I believe to have been created when the spring run was straightened and deepened, a 1980's disturbance that probably cut through a reliably wet (for fen plants) peat layer.
