List of Plants collected by the Officers, &c., in Captain Ross's voyage, on the coasts of Baffin's Bay
"List of Plants collected by the Officers, &c., in Captain Ross's voyage, on the coasts of Baffin's Bay is an 1818 paper written by Robert Brown, which lists the plants discovered during John Ross's voyage to Baffin's Bay. Though largely unremarkable, it is significant in providing the first, albeit tentative, attribution of the phenomenon of red snow to an algae.
