Abstract : The purpose of this report is to provide an inventory of the environmental resources within the floodplains of the upper Mississippi and lower Missouri Rivers and selected tributaries. The study area has been divided by river beaches. The main objectives of the inventory are: establish a 1993 base-line condition of the floodplains by characterizing associated environmental resources including soils, vegetation, wetlands, lakes, fish and wildlife, endangered species, important habitats, unique ecosystems and plant communities; describe the effects of the 1993 flood and provide a foundation for projecting the effects and implications of alternative floodplain management policies on these resources.
