Please Note: We’re in the process of redoing these webpages (in order to facilitate faster loading and to make the content more easily searchable). So, at the moment, data entry is incomplete (in particular, the greatest portion of species images still have to be entered) and there are a number of known bugs. So, please be patient with us as we continue to address these issues. And, please check back soon (7/5/2018).

You can also find additional information on the biota of the Gordon in the 'Gordon Natural Area Collection' on DigitalCommons.
