This project involved three main parts: 1) field inventory and review of existing information on forest types in the watershed; 2) classification of observed vegetation types within the framework of the U.S. National Vegetation Cl assification (NVC); and 3) an assessment of the conservation significance of the plant communities documented. Of particular note was the discovery of a previously unrecognized, and globally rare, upland pitch pine community.
