Figure 2.18 LANDSAT imagery of the cumulative damage at La Pe'rouse Bay, Manitoba between 1973 and 1993 largely caused by lesser snow geese. On the image, water appears blue, intact vegetation cover green, and damaged areas where there is bare soil or incomplete plant cover appears red. In 1973 these areas had complete vegetation cover (after Jano, A. unpublished data).
