Point-Intercept Survey Data
Recognizing a need for quantitative baseline data on aquatic aquatic plant communities in lakes and flowages across the state, DNR Science Services have created a dataset of aquatic plant community point-intercept survey data on >300 lakes and flowages from 2005-present. Collecting and providing baseline survey data creates context to which other lakes can be compared across time and space, and allows for an improved understanding of the variation in aquatic plant communities across the state.
