Abstract : Field spectral reflectance measurements (350-900nm) were collected on select coastal and freshwater wetland plant canopies during the 1994 growing season. In this report, the author catalogues the signatures obtained for tidal and non-tidal specimens. This is the first report in an overall compendium of wetland plant signatures. In addition, this reference includes algal biomass and soil signatures. (MM)
