Cedar Glades Studies Collection

This collection reflects a partnership between Walker Library and the MTSU Center for Cedar Glade Studies; Cedar glades are an endangered ecosystem that are globally rare. These extremely rare habitats are found primarily in Middle Tennessee and a few localities in other southeastern states.  The karst topography of the glade also supports an underlying cave network home to many extraordinary species. This digital collection documents historical research into the ecology of cedar glades and individual rare species found in the glades.
