- A 92-page report detailing the classification of Northern Piedmont and Blue Ridge Circumneutral Seepage Swamps, Wildlife and Heritage Service, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, for United States Environmental Protection Agency [Grant CD993416] — November 1998• Classify eachplot to one of these Association types.
Our understanding of patterns of variations in the natural world is constantly changing and improving. Exemplary occurrences include all rare community types such as coastal prairies and the highest quality examples of more common community types such as bottomland hardwood forests.
A Natural Community A natural community is a group of organisms, flora and fauna, that are interrelated with each other and their environment. Eastern Hemlock — Hardwood Forest• We have copious information for those natural communities that have been systematically inventoried and intensively sampled, while for others, we have only cursory data, or only a few benchmark sites remain to be studied due to anthropogenic disturbances such as fire suppression.
Environmental Protection Agency Clean Water Act 1998 State Wetlands Protection Classification of natural communities. Grant Program — June 2003• NYNHP willcommunicate with NAC after this first rapid grouping effort to discuss difficult classification plots, themost common groupings, and any other issues that may have arisen.
They are identified by such natural features as:• Occupying these shell-middens is a unique and globally rare plant community that supports 202 native species and varieties of vascular plants, including 87 that are rare or uncommon on the Peninsula and 21 that are new additions to the flora of the Delmarva - 2012• Natural Community Factsheets coming soon!
The detailed information presented in the key and the natural community descriptions gives a range of variability for each natural community type, and there will be no exact matches in the field. Detailed descriptions are available at two levels of the classification.
This classification system deals with vegetated communities in a relatively natural condition. Rapid grouping and classification meetingUsing existing keys developed for the North Atlantic Coast Ecoregion and other relevant regional efforts,NYNHP will manually assign a National Vegetation Classification NVC Association to each vegetationplot.
Lewis, Michigan Aerospace Corporation Users of this natural community classification should recognize that the division of the natural world into discrete categories is inherently an artificial process and a matter of human convenience, and subject to human bias.
