Kejimkujik is also influenced by oceanic weather systems, so its precipitation has high concentrations of sodium and chloride that are derived from sea spray.

Oceanic salt water has a pH of about because of the presence of chemicals such as bicarbonate, so marine aerosols have an acid-neutralizing influence on the precipitation in coastal. Environmental factors determine the habitat selection, use and distribution of species at various spatial scales.

Understanding the factors driving these distributions can help predict areas of higher species occurrence, and be used in species conservation, and management strategies.
