Spring and Summer 2001: Summary of observed LDEO, New York State Wild Flowers : North East American Wildflowers


2001 Lamont CHILI COOK-OFF (part 1 of 4) - 5pm onwards, 11th May 2001


Getting to Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, New York, USA


Blurred and badly framed images relating to the Lamont Bus and day visit to the Columbia University main campus in Manhattan, New York City, USA - 23rd May 2001


Wildflowers, Flora and Fauna of LDEO - Spring 2001 at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, New York, USA:

May 2001 Wildflowers of New York State, North East American Wildflowers, and Scenes of LDEO

"To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again." - "Nature: Chapter Three" by Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

When in doubt, use the following for identification from the Palisades Free Library, N.Y. USA: "Wild Flowers of the United States: The Northeastern States Part 1 and Part 2" by Harold William Rickett, 1965, Publication of the New York Botanical Garden, McGraw-Hill Book Company, New York; Library of Congress Card Number: 66-17920; First Edition: Second Printing 52614

Other good books if the above does not cut the mustard are: Newcomb's Wildflower Guide by Lawrence Newcomb (and illustrated by Gordon Morrison), Little Brown and Company, 1977; Library of Congress Card Number 77-47 and A field guide to wildflowers of Northeastern and North-central North America by Roger Tory Peterson and Margeret McKenny, 1968, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, Library of Congress Number: 67-13042

Major advance against the forces of evil in the ever vigilent war of nerves that is: Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University wildflower indentification. In over 4 to 6 weeks of quite stressful detective work (and 6 to 10 books borrowed from the Palisades free library system - and assistance from the very helpful research librarians ) : identify Black swallow-wort (Cynanchum nigrum; Cynanchum rossicum) - supposedly one of the Top 20 Invasive Plants of New York State. Newcomb's Wildflower Guide by Lawrence Newcomb (and illustrated by Gordon Morrison), Little Brown and Company, 1977; Library of Congress Card Number 77-47 was the book that made the breakthrough. Cross validated by A field guide to wildflowers of Northeastern and North-central North America by Roger Tory Peterson and Margeret McKenny, 1968, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, Library of Congress Number: 67-13042. This was followed by cross-cross validation from a Google websearch leading to Invasive Plants Council of New York State: Black Swallow-worts: Cynanchum nigrum & Cynanchum rossicum.
