Description and keys of northern Ontario genera



This new addition to the NOPD website will contain genus descriptions and keys to genera with several species native to northern Ontario. Comparison charts have also been developed so that the traits of similar species may be compared. Distribution charts have also been added for those genera where information on the species' ranges will assist in identification. Over the next 2 months, descriptions, keys, and comparison charts will be added for the genera listed below. As descriptions are uploaded, the genus name will be linked to the description page and keys.
