Wetlands and aquatic habitats are critical components of the biologically productive Galveston Bay estuarine system. Mapping and describing the composition of these important habitats are essential steps in defining their status and in measuring and anticipating the effects of the numerous coastal activities that directly and indirectly influence them. Understanding cause-and-effect relationships can be promoted only through such detailed scientific investigations. This report is the culmination of a field investigation of wetland plant communities, and is one phase of the project Trends and Status of Wetland and Aquatic Habitats of the Galveston Bay System, Texas sponsored by the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program.
