Phragmites: Key Field Characteristics

Native versus Non-native

Mid-Atlantic Region

By Robert Meadows, DE Division of Fish & Wildlife



An illustrated guide to the key field characteristics unique to native and non-native Phragmites populations in the mid-Atlantic Region.

Key habitat associations will be presented, along with strategies/approaches that help focus field surveys on wetland areas with the highest prospect of supporting native populations. The history and genetics of Phragmites in North America will also be briefly reviewed. The material is presented in a Power Point format on a single CD. Copies will be distributed at the “Mid-Atlantic Native Phragmites Workshop” on July 16, 2003 and is also available on request from:
