The emergent vegetation-open water interface plays an important role in the use of freshwater wetlands by many species of animals. The objective of this study was to monitor the distribution and abundance of free-swimming invertebrates at the cattail (Typha × glauca Godr.)—open water interface in two bays (sheltered and unsheltered) in the Delta Marsh in south-central Manitoba during 1985. Submersed vegetation densities were higher in the open water sites of the sheltered bay during most of the… CONTINUE READING
