Vegetation Classification, Mapping, and Monitoring at Voyageurs National Park, Minnesota: An application of the U.S. National Vegetation Classification

Applied Vegetation ScienceFaber-Langendoen D

The USNVC provides a consistent ecological tool for summarizing and mapping vegetation. The products provide a baseline for assessing forests and wetlands, including fire management. The standardized classification and map units provide local to continental perspectives on park resources through linkages to state, provincial, and national classifications in the U.S. and Canada, and to NatureServe’s Ecological Systems classification.
