vascularEstuaries
Estuaries, also known as salt marshes, are a type of coastal wetland, typically impacted by tidal fluctuations. They are found where fresh water from rivers or streams meets with salt water from the ocean, and vegetation within an estuary exhibits varying degrees of salt-water tolerance.

vascularSurfgrass Bioband
Surfgrass bioband extracted from the BC Shorezone mapping system. Includes Scouler's surfgrass (Phyllospadix scouleri), toothed surfgrass (Phyllospadix serrulatus) and Torrey's surfgrass (Phyllospadix torreyi). Found mainly in the lower intertidal zone.

vascularDitch Grass
Ditch grass (Ruppia spp.) are aquatic vascular plants that can live underwater. They are commonly referred to as a type of intertidal seagrass, although it is a freshwater species with a high salt tolerance. It provides habitat and food for many species and is a indicator of coastal wetland health.

vascularEelgrass Polygons
Eelgrass (Zostera marina) is a type of marine plant known as seagrass, which, unlike seaweed, contains a vascular system that transports liquid and nutrients. Eelgrass provides habitat for many species.

vascularEelgrass Bioband
Eelgrass (Zostera marina) is found on fine sediments (such as estuaries and mud bays) in the subtidal zone and may extend slightly upslope into the lower intertidal. It provides habitat for fish and shellfish and food for marine birds. This data layer was developed from the BC Shorezone Mapping system.
