The vascular flora of Fresh Creek, Jamaica Bay, New York.

The objective of the present study was to identify the vascular flora at Fresh Creek, a 65.3 ha site, bordering Jamaica Bay, New York. This site was visited at approximately monthly intervals from March 12, 2000 to October 15, 2000. Selected species were collected, identified, and mounted on herbarium paper; these species are housed in Gateway National Recreation Herbarium, Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island, New York. The vascular flora of Fresh Creek consists of 161 species. 130 dicots, thirty monocots, and one fern ally, Equisetum arvense were identified at this site. 88 species, 54.3% of the flora, were non-native. New York State rare plants identified at the site were Aster subulatus and Solidago sempervirens, var. mexicana.
