Newfoundland & Labrador 2003


(Page 8 of 11)

Gros Morne National Park


Bakers Brook Falls trail


Ferns growing out of a stump.

Bunchberry. These fruits are edible, but are hardly worth the trouble. There is a large seed inside each one, to which the pulp clings tenaciously.
These pale plants are known as Indian Pipes. They contain no chlorophyll, obtaining their energy in much the same manner as mushrooms and fungus. Hence their white colour (chlorophyll is what makes plants green).

Indian Pipes are found in deep forests, where there are reduced light conditions.


Bakers Brook Falls

Large Round-Leaved Orchid, one of the multitude of orchid species in Newfoundland. 

These seem to prefer deeper woods, but where there is some light.
