[Although Arabidopsis arenicola is native to nLab., it was introduced in Nfld. along a gravel airstrip in Sandy Cove where non-commercial flights from Voisey's Bay and other northern Labrador locations landed. The first NL site was discovered in Sandy Cove, nwNfld. (MT), July 1998, by S.J. Meades. Arabidopsis arenicola is now spreading in disturbed calcareous and sandy areas in and around Goose Bay Airport and southern Labrador (i.e. Red Bay, NL and Blanc Sablon, QC), as well as the Great Northern Peninsula.]
