[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Vegetation field plots at Congaree Swamp National Monument were visited,
described, and documented in a digital database. The database consists of 2
parts - (1) Physical Descriptive Data, and (2) Species Listings.

The vegetation plots were used to describe the vegetation in and around
Congaree Swamp National Monument and to assist in developing a final mapping
classification system.
