The vegetation of the Canadian Prairie Provinces III. Aquatic and semi-aquatic vegetation, Part 2 Freshwater marshes and bogs
In this paper the semi-aquatic freshwater vegetation of the Canadian Prairie Provinces is described. Three classes are recognized: Isoeto-Nanojuncetea Br.-Bl. et Tx. 1943; Scolochloo-Phragmitetea Looman 1981, and Parvocarcetea capitatae cl. nov. In these classes three orders, 6 alliances, 13 associations and 12 subassociations are proposed. The synecology and distribution of the units are discussed. The biocoenoses, created by the freshwater marshes and bogs, including the faunal component, are described and discussed.
