A decline in Lake Erie water levels in from historic high levels of the s has facilitated a shift in coastal wetland vegetation from open-water floating-leaf plant communities to emergent communities often dominated by the invasive perennial grass, Phragmites australis. Dense, near monotypic stands of this grass may lead to the loss of native plants and reduce suitable habitat for Cited by: 4.
