Biodiversity Investment Areas: Coastal Wetland Ecosystems




This project identifies areas of the Great Lakes shoreline that contain high quality faunal habitat that could be identified as Biodiversity Investment Areas (Holland and Reid 1996). In attempting to use the Holland and Reid (1996) approach for the coastal wetlands, this project has identified eco-reaches of Great Lakes shoreline that support extensive use by birds for breeding habitat, and by fish for spawning and/or nursery habitat.
