Abstract

We studied plants on several neighbouring small islands in an Arctic lake and the sea and despite a common source of colonizers and similar environmental characteristics there were striking differences in the compositions of their floras. The best explanation of the differences could be a combination of several factors, most likely salinity and tides.
