The wetlands of Elk Island National Park, located in central Alberta, are characterized by their vegetation and relationships between vegetation, surface water chemistry, and hydrotopographic parameters. Thirteen marsh, swamp, fen, and bog communities are described on the basis of TWINSPAN and the Canadian Wetland Classification System. Species distribution in Elk Island is related to surface water cation gradients of corrected conductivity, pH, calcium, magnesium, and sodium. Hydrotopographic… CONTINUE READING
