Exploitation, escape of introduced exotic species, and insect epidemics have combined to cause the loss of valued Juniperus bermudiana stands on the Atlantic islands. The inability to reestablish stands of the internationally classified endangered species because of social constraints has also altered the island biome. Taxonomic confusion, the symbiotic role of earthworms and "cedars," and the calciphilous nature of junipers are discussed.
