This study used the detailed plots-based floristic descriptions of traditional phytosociology to inform scenes of high resolution imagery to characterize and map, in detail, the brackish tidal wetland plant communities of Ragged Rock Creek. An emphasis was placed on providing a baseline geographic context for plants of conservation and management interest, i.e., both state-listed plants and invasive plants. The results provided a baseline vegetation assessment and map prior to invasive Phragmites australis (common reed) control and restoration by onsite re-vegetation.
