Packera cymbalaria

From Natural History of Southeast Alaska
Jump to: navigation, search

Dwarf Arctic Ragwort (Packera cymbalaria): Despite occurring throughout much of the rest of Alaska (both interior, and more coastal areas at Kodiak Island and the Alaska Penninsula, in Southeast Alaska, this species is only known from the southern outer islands, where it's been collected on Prince of Wales (1979) and Coronation Island (1959). Perhaps this somewhat disjunct occurrence in southern Southeast Alaska (and Haida Gwaii) represents a refugial population that was separated from the main group during the last ice age?
