The vegetative index (section 62-340.450, F.A.C.), is used in the identification and delineation of wetlands within Florida. The use of plant species in the rule shall be consistent at all times with the indicator status of the species on the vegetative index. Plants on the vegetative index are specifically listed as obligate (OBL), facultative wet (FACW), and facultative (FAC). Any plant not specifically listed is considered an upland plant except vines, aquatic plants and any plant species not introduced into the state of Florida as of the effective date of Chapter 62-340, F.A.C. (subsection 62-340.200(17), F.A.C.).
