This dataset includes reconstructed habitat types and ecological characteristics of six northern San Diego County lagoons, representing average dry-season conditions, prior to substantial Euro-American modification (~late 1700s-late 1800s). The six lagoons examined in this study include Buena Vista Lagoon, Agua Hedionda Lagoon, Batiquitos Lagoon, San Elijo Lagoon, San Dieguito Lagoon, and Los Peñasquitos Lagoon. Documentation of historical ecological conditions is intended to serve as a tool to help support and guide restoration design, planning, and management of coastal wetland systems in northern San Diego County.
