LIEN: http://mnfi.anr.msu.edu/pub/pdfs/BetweenLandAndLake.pdf

Description

In this book, we define and describe the diversity of coastal wetlands found along the Great Lakes shoreline and connecting waterways. Throughout the region, a series of environmental factors converge to create distinctive wetland environments and wetland types with characteristic assemblages of plant and animal species.We identify the natural processes that occur within the various types of coastal wetlands and make Great Lakes wetlands ecologically different from the smaller, inland wetlands familiar to many of us.Finally, we discuss the impacts of human development and land use on coastal wetlands and discuss ways in which we can protect and restore this important natural resource for future generations.
