Reindeer Moss. After destroyed by fire does not come back for 30-40 
years. Fires in Nova Scotia 30-40 years ago. "Those forest fires des-

troyed the reindeer-moss and today, as a consequence, the caribou have 
disappeared. The reindeer-moss is now coming back but I doubt if the 
caribou will follow it." 
Moss killed out by forest reproduction--evidently second stage 
after fire; forest the third.' 
Ground Hemlock.  (Taxus canadensis). In Nova Scotia found only under 
hemlock. 'The cutting of the hemlock stands will cause the ground hem- 
lock to disappear as it can only exist under the shade of older trees. 
I have noted the disappearance or diminution of the deer stand--where old

hemlock stands have been cut."
