Abstract: This document presents data collected on the vegetation of dredged material islands and sites in Corps of Engineer-maintained waterways through-out the United States. More than 2000 dredged material islands and numerous dredged material sites have been built in the past 100 years; 202 of these were intensively sampled and all vegetation recorded, identified, and/or collected as voucher specimens. Six tables present the following data: a.) Annotated listing by common name of 1120 plant species occurring on dredged material. b.) A selection of 361 upland and high marsh plant species and 115 wetland plant species that may be planted on dredged material for wildlife habitat enhancement and/or substrate stabilization. c.) Matrixes of the 361 upland and the 115 wetland plant species. d.) An alphabetical group listing by scientific name and authority of the 1120 plant species occurring on dredged material. These data were prepared to provide managers with data pertinent to planned plant establishment on wetland and upland dredged material islands and sites throughout the United States.
