The second one is an article by Bob Wrigley, the Assiniboine Park Zoo’s Curator. It’s a great introduction to biodiversity around the province with a historical context. Here’s a quick excerpt:

There are 635 vertebrate (back-boned) animals, over 31,000 invertebrates (“lower” animals), 2433 plants, 800 lichens (a symbiotic association of fungi and algae), 3000 fungi, and a staggering 36,000 algae in Manitoba; certain of these figures will continue to rise with new studies.
