Abstract: This guide to the major plant associations and communities found in wetlands within the North Atlantic region of the United States is one of a series of eight such guides, each prepared by a specialist or specialists familiar with the wetlands in the region covered by the guide. The guides are intended for distribution to the various U. S. Army Engineer Districts for use in the onsite technical identification and delineation of wetland boundaries. The classification system in this guide is adapted from that utilized by the National Wetland Inventory (NWI) Project of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, but frequently departs from NWI's system to describe common and/or distinct wetland communities or associations.
