[S M Haslam; P A Wolseley]. Aquatic plants are generally divided into four groups for management purposes. Many ponds have more than one type of aquatic plant, and care must be taken to identify all the aquatic plants inhabiting the pond.

Some pond plants may be beneficial to local or migratory wildlife, and therefore, may want to be encouraged or at least not eliminated. A wetland is a swamp, marsh, or other similar area that supports natural vegetation that is distinct from the adjacent upland areas.

More specifically, a wetland is an area where a water table is at, near, or above the surface or where soils are water-saturated for a sufficient length of time that excess water and resulting low oxygen levels are principal determinants of vegetation and soil.

Wetland Identification and Assessment A major purpose of this assessment was to identify significant and sensitive resources that occur within the study area. Several freshwater wetland habitats and surface water types were identified, classified, and characterized. These include marshes, shrub wetland, forested swamps, river, lakes, and ponds.

Ripon Parks is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, or SSSI, situated north of Ripon, to the west of the River Ure and to the east of the village of North Stainley, in North Yorkshire, was once part of the land held since the Middle Ages as a deer park by the archbishops of York (including Cardinal Wolsey) and the canons of Ripon.

The site was designated as an SSSI in. The NDVI and its derivative indices such as coefficient of variation (CV) and vegetation condition index (VCI) have been proved effective for vegetation dynamics identification [24, 25].

The NDVI has also been successfully applied in many other fields, including land cover classification [ 26 ], plant phenology [ 27 ], drought assessment [ 28 Cited by: 5.
