The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is leading a national effort to update the
National Wetland Plant List (NWPL) and is seeking input on revisions,
additions, and deletions to the plant list.

The NWPL covers all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S.
Caribbean and Pacific islands that are considered to be territories of the
U.S and the information implied by its wetland plant species status ratings
is used extensively in wetland delineation, wetland restoration and
research, and the development of compensatory mitigation goals, as well as
in providing general botanical information about wetland plants.

The NWPL website provides access to wetland plant species by State
(including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, but not Guam) and by
Region (encompassing the total geographic range for each taxon throughout
North America north of Mexico).

Forwarded message:

In an effort to continuously improve the National Wetland Plant List
> (NWPL), the NWPL panel has released an online questionnaire designed to
> identify those plant species for which wetland ratings may need revision,
> as well as species that should be considered for addition and/or deletion
> from the list.

> The questionnaire requires the respondent to identify the species in
> question, the wetland region(s) and/or sub-region(s) in which its wetland
> rating needs to be reviewed, the current wetland rating, and the proposed
> wetland rating change.

> The questionnaire is open to any agency, institution, or individual who
> cares to submit information on one or more plant species with wetland
> ratings that may need further review.

> Questionnaires will be accepted November 10, 2014 through January 31,
> 2015.
> Read the announcement and find the link to the questionnaire at:
