amphi-Atlantic species

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The plants that are found on both sides of the northern Atlantic, along the seaboards of eastern North America and western Europe. This disjunct distribution pattern is thought to be largely inherited from a single circum-North-Atlantic coastal plain flora. Typical representatives are pipewort (Eriocaulon septangulare), a slender aquatic herb, and Scots lovage (Ligusticum scoticum), an umbelliferous plant.
