Purpose

The data were collected to document seed biomass, by species, of resources located in shallow water coastal areas to use as inputs to waterfowl carrying capacity models. These data can be used to estimated potential waterfowl food resources, and merged with a dataset that documents associated environmental and submerged aquatic vegetation data (https://doi.org/10.5066/F7M61HG4).
