Lakes of Biological Significance (LBS) are those selected by the MN DNR based on the presence of unique plant or animal communities (including aquatic plants, fish, birds, and amphibians). They are divided into three classes (outstanding, high, or moderate) based on biological significance. This list of high quality lakes based on dedicated biological sampling can be used to focus protection efforts.
