A Comprehensive Inventory of Alabama Coastal Zone Wetland Habitats (Swamps, Marshes, Submersed Grassbeds) from 1980 to 1982 (NCEI Accession 0161311)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

Digitized maps of Mobile Bay and other coastal areas of Alabama, showing habitat types and species compositions of the vegetation in three broad categories of wetland: swamps, marshes, and submersed grassbeds. All areas in the Alabama Coastal Zone of less than 10 feet elevation above sea level, up to the fork of the Tombigbee and Alabama Rivers, were included in the inventory. Habitat boundary delineations were based on aerial photographs from 1979 and 1980, with transects by boat or foot for field verification in 1980-1982. Dataset includes habitat type classifications based on species compositions, and identifications of dominant species at each location.
