Abstract: This report is the third in a series of reports (see also ERDC/CRREL TN-08-3 and ERDC/CRREL TN-09-1) documenting procedures used in updating the National Wetland Plant List, formerly called the National List of Plant Species that Occur in Wetlands (Reed 1988). This national effort was led by four Federal agencies: the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. The update of plant species’ wetland indicator status ratings involved five rounds of voting by national and regional botanists, with evaluation by wetland ecologists and input from professional scientists from the public and academic institutions. This report describes the voting process and the wetland indicator status definitions that will be used to make final decisions for species with ratings that remain unresolved after the final round of voting from the public.
