Amended Recovery Strategy and Management Plan for Multiple Species of Atlantic Coastal Plain Flora in Canada - 2015 [Proposed]

 

Appendix 4 : Habitat Types for ACPF Species

An indication that a species occurs in a particular habitat type is based on the expert opinion of the botanists on the ACPF Recovery Team and is based on the observation of the species in that habitat type in NS. A species can occur in more than one habitat type. Habitat types are considered broad ecological and functional groups.
