Abstract : Vegetation of the Thule Peninsula was sampled along a 16-mile transect between Thule Air Base and Camp Tuto. The general vegetation is small and sparse. Grasses and sedges, found in marshy areas, are the largest plants; most of the trees and other plants are less than five inches high. The vegetation may be used in and emergency for fuel, food, and insulation by individuals or small groups; it is of no value for providing opportunities for cover or concealment.
