Fig 1. Characteristics of surveyed vegetation types in Saginaw
Bay wetlands, 1994-1995, based on National Wetlands Inventory (Cowardin et al.
1979) classification system. PSS1C = Palustrine, broad-leafed deciduous scrub-shrub,
and seasonally flooded; PEM1/SS1B = Palustrine, persistent emergent/broad-leafed
deciduous scrub-shrub, and saturated; PEM1B = Palustrine, persistent emergent,
and saturated; PEM1F = Palustrine, persistent emergent, and semi-permanently
flooded; PEM1G = Palustrine, persistent emergent, and intermittently exposed
(Cowardin et al. 1979).
