A little beauty on the barrens : a cooperative, ecosystem approach to protecting rare plants.: R62-558/2019E-PDF
"The tiny Fernald's braya (a mustard species known by the scientific name of Braya fernaldii) grows nowhere in the world but on the coastal limestone barrens of northwestern Newfoundland. ... Fernald's braya is however vulnerable to any activity that alters its habitat– like gravel extraction, burial under piles of material, or vehicle traffic. This is one of the reasons why the tiny perennial has been designated threatened under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). Others include low numbers and limited populations. The good news for Fernald's braya is that the local people are getting to know and love the barrens. Moreover, they're helping to protect the rare plants in the process."
