MassGIS 2003 Massachusetts Priority Natural Vegetation Communities : Coastal Plain Pond Systems (April 2003)

Description
This datalayer contains polygons representing Massachusetts Priority Natural Vegetation Communities : Coastal Plain Pond Systems. The data covers only a portion of southeastern Massachusetts. Coastal Plain Pond Systems consist of certain kettlehole ponds and the pondshores developed around their fluctuating water levels. This layer is part of the MassGIS Priority Natural Vegetation Communities dataset, which depicts the distribution of the eight natural community systems identified by the Massachusetts Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program (NHESP) as most critical to the conservation of the Commonwealth's biological diversity (Barbour et al., 1998).
