Abstract

The flora contained 88 families, 236 genera, and 343 species of which 96 species were not native. The distribution of field, fire, marsh and forest vegetation is presented in a map. The forests were divided into dry, moist, swamp and disturbed. The forest types showed variation from level ground to sloping areas. The marsh associations are common reed, cattails, low emergents and lilies, buttonbush, swamp forest and open water. The Vault Hill Fire Community has been burned over at least once a year over the past 5yr.-from Authors
