These picture guides were developed for field use. The guides are not all-inclusive. The intent is to provide the more commonly encountered plants in each wetland type. To facilitate use of the field guides, they may be copied front and back and then laminated to prevent wear and tear in the field. A ruler is included on some pages to facilitate in plant recognition.
