Thomas F. Grittinger's thesis, entitled "Vegetational Patterns and Edaphic Relationships in Cedarburg Bog," summarized for the first time we now have a large amount of information about the variety and detailed composition of the vegetation within the bog, together with related factors such as peat depth and water quality. The vegetation types were objectively analyzed, described, and mapped, then related to site factors and history of distrubance.
