The vegetation of the Canadian Prairie Provinces III. Aquatic and semi-aquatic vegetation
The aquatic and semi-aquatic vegetation of the Prairie Provinces include: 1. the salt marshes and salt meadows, 2. freshwater marshes, and 3. aquatic vegetation. To classify water on a scale comparable to that of the Venice system, electric conductance is related to Cl- content and expressed as Ec = mmhos/cm. In this paper, salt marshes and salt meadows are classified. Several new classification units are proposed, including one class and two class groups. The vegetation units proposed allow for classification of units in the Prairie Provinces with comparable vegetation in Eurasia.
