Chapter 5: Vegetation

5.25: Ribbed Fen East of Warren Landing, North End of Lake Winnipeg

Ribbed fen with slightly elevated ridges of vegetation 1 at right angles to the direction of water movement occupies much of the centre of the photo. Ground water flowing to the west coalesces into drainage channels 2 that become Oscar Creek 3 that in turn drains into the upper reaches of the Nelson River (off the photo).
