Eastern Prickly Pear Cactus - Point Pelee
The endangered eastern prickly pear cactus is a focal species for Lake Erie Sand Spit Savannas (LESSS), one of the most imperiled terrestrial ecosystems in North America. Although monitoring of the of eastern prickly pear cactus has occurred within the park since 1971, accurate estimation of population trends is not possible due to variability in sampling techniques. Presently Point Pelee National Park uses a 10x10m grid to sample selected plots of different densities.
