Variables for the supply of wetland services, southern Canada
Table summary
This table displays variables for the supply of wetland services for southern Canada. The row headers are comprised of the names of the 67 sub-drainage areas found in southern Canada. The column headers are comprised of the sub-drainage area code; area, in square kilometres; and extent characteristics, which is broken down into wetland extent, in percent of area and peatland extent, in percent of area.

Total area of the sub-drainage area including large bodies of water.
Wetland extent was calculated using coefficients derived from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada 2011 30 m land cover and regional and provincial high resolution wetland datasets.
Peatland extent estimates were derived from soil landscape geographies of the national peatland database and area weighted to sub-drainage areas.
