COURSE DESCRIPTION This course introduces students to plants common in and around northeast wetlands. Nontidal wetland species and upland border species are emphasized.

The instructor, based on his vast knowledge, will give helpful hints for plant identification. A variety of wetlands will be visited to expose students to species characterizing typical wetland types in the region.
