August 6, 2009: Labrador Tea

Vicky and lucia complete plot 1 After breakfast, we return to the profile. The team splits up. Due to our experience from yesterday, Lucia and I are asked to complete the vegetation study on the second plot with Olga as our guide. It is covered in many grasses and doesn’t contain many trees. We complete all five quadrants while Olga completes the population study. We are also introduced to a new species, Labrador tea. Its structure is similar to bog rosemary, but it has a red stem and distinctive smell. We join the rest of the group for lunch. They too have completed a plot. For the afternoon, we complete a plot together while Fabio and Oleg continue with creating the profile.
