The plants collected by the Expedition were identified by various
experts and described in Volume V: Botany of the Expedition report
series. Most of the vascular plants were collected by Fritz Johansen.
Although he was primarily a marine biologist, he also collected
many plants during his travels with the Expedition. From these
collections, botanists determined that some 230 species of vascular
plants occur on the Arctic shore between Point Barrow, Alaska,
and Bathurst Inlet, Nunavut.
