3. What aquatic resources are present within the park boundary (see next page for list of definitions); have any of these systems/subsystems been inventoried (I), monitored (M) or has research (R) been conducted within any of these systems/subsystems (respond in column 4 with an I, M, and/or R); provide the actual total count for each system/subsystem inventoried, or if not inventoried provide an estimated count, if possible, for each system/subsystem (column 5); in column 6, identify the source of the count in column 5 (I for Inventory, E for estimate).

1. Marine System: open ocean

2. Subtidal Subsystem: substrate continuously submerged

3. Intertidal Subsystem: substrate is exposed and flooded by tides and includes associated splash zone

4. Lotic System: flowing water

5. Tidal Subsystem: channel gradient is low and water velocity fluctuates under tidal influence

6. Perennial Subsystem: water flows throughout the year

7. Intermittent Subsystem: channel contains flowing water for only part of the year. When water is not flowing, it may remain in isolated pools or surface water may be absent

8. Lentic System: ponds, lakes, and reservoirs

9. Palustrine System: all nontidal wetlands dominated by trees, shrubs, persistent emergent vegetation, emergent mosses or lichens, and all such wetlands that occur in tidal areas where salinity due to ocean-derived salts is below 0.5 0/00
