Upper Mississippi River Conservation Committee (UMRCC) Vegetation Data

The Upper Mississippi River Conservation Committee (UMRCC) is a multi-agency partnership of natural resource managers in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Since 2005, the Vegetation Committee of the UMRCC Wildlife Technical Section has attempted to conduct sampling of aquatic vegetation in one or two pools of the Upper Mississippi River each year. Data collection is conducted by employees of state and federal agencies, tribes, NGOs, and volunteers, and is usually completed in one or two days. Aquatic vegetation sampling methodology utilized during these efforts is slightly modified from that of Yin et al (2000).

Metadata for the UMRCC Vegetation Data can be found here.
