We described the vegetation of two alluvial swamp forest stands along Durham Creek in Beaufort County, North Carolina, USA in relation to elevation, hydrologic, and edaphic gradients. Over 3,000 surveyed elevations of individual plant microsites were used in conjunction with 26 years of stream gage data to examine individual species responses to annual and growing season flooding frequencies. Direct gradient analyses combined with plot ordinations derived from detrended correspondence analysis… CONTINUE READING
