This ecological character description (ECD) includes information specific to the Ramsar site, as well as to the nature reserve as a whole and to the adjacent aquatic reserve (as detailed in the text). The wetland types, the ecosystem components, processes and services, and the limits of acceptable change are much the same for the nature reserve and the Ramsar site and are highly interconnected with those of the aquatic reserve, and consequently cannot be easily discussed separately. Much of the available information to support this ECD was collected for the nature reserve as a whole and cannot easily be disaggregated to apply solely to the Ramsar site.
