The St. Clair River and Lake St. Clair form a part of the connecting channel system between Lake Huron and Lake Erie. The report synthesizes existing information on the ecological structure and function of the ecosystem. Chapters include descriptions of climatology, hydrology, and geology of the region; biological characteristics; ecological relationships; and commercial and recreational uses, as well as discussions of management considerations and issues. The St. Clair system provides valuable habitat for migratory waterfowl and fish spawning and nurseries, and contains some of the most extensive emergent wetlands in the region.
