Abstract

This is a floral inventory of the Gills creek watershed. It was conducted from fall 2014 through spring 2016. The final product is a list of plants that are known to presently or historically exist in the watershed. The list is comprised of 250 native species and 36 introduced and invasive species. The results indicate that Gills creek watershed’s plant diversity is severely threatened by introduced and invasive species, but still retains sizable native diversity.
