Invasive non-native plants - Waterton Lakes - Grasslands Non-native plants have invaded most low-elevation habitats and physically disturbed sites in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP). Parks Canada devotes substantial resources annually to efforts to control or eradicate the most invasive and persistent non-native plants. A Non-native Plant Condition Monitoring protocol was developed to detect changes in the abundance and distribution of non-native plant species across vulnerable regions of WLNP, and to gain an understanding of the severities and differences in impacts that non-native plants have on native plant communities. Relative abundance (I.e. percent cover) of non-native invasive plant species in the fescue grasslands and aspen parkland regions in the WLNP is estimated using spatially balanced random sampling. 2017-10-01 2018-04-16 Parks Canada robert.sissons@pc.gc.ca Nature and Environmentinvasive non-native plantspercent coverrelative abundancerandom samplingpower analysisAlberta Invasive non-native plants - Waterton Lakes - cover data - 1CSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/EYlS61l5T6hCqIOCKQ9NxwsBfZ4JgmykVtbeXEdaNHu-hA?e=d0R7fW Invasive non-native plants - Waterton Lakes - cover data dictionary - 2CSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/EX2ofHvlFPlEip1ApBaDd8gBdqxm7xPiKZbZElpVRplt6w?e=rz2zjj
