National Wetland Plant List
A national effort led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to update the North American Digital Flora: National Wetland Plant List (NWPL). The NWPL 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. It 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.
Updating the NWPL has been a cooperative effort of the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, The Biota of North America, states, Indian Nations, the academic community, and the scientific portion of the public.
