Odonata - Prince Edward Island

Odonata - Prince Edward Island Odonata monitoring is conducted in four shallow water ponds within the wetland ecosystems of PEI National Park. Park staff collect exuviae (the remains of aquatic larval stage exoskeleton) of metamorphosed larvae from the order odonata twice per year: in the early summer (June) and late summer (August) during peak emergence periods. The objective of the measure is to acquire baseline data on the species diversity and relative abundance of dragonflies and damselflies within wetlands of the national park. Taxonomic diversity and abundance are compared against historical levels to assess ecological integrity. 2019-10-08 Parks Canada Paul.giroux@pc.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentPEI National Parkwetlandsodonatadragonfliesbiodiversityexuviae Odonata - Prince Edward IslandCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/ETuV2wL5wHxOtUCh2Uoy8soBa-l87McgpIF06U2hutsChA Odonata - Prince Edward Island - Data DictionaryCSV https://124gc.sharepoint.com/:x:/s/external/_layouts/15/download.aspx/ET-Skg7VHb1Iiy54PxZ1MUoBPkm2op9Q-7P6lyAuT7fBXA
