Abstract : As part of a national study, vegetation associated with known hydric soil series was sampled on the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge in southern Mississippi. Weighted average values were calculated for vegetation associations on each soil series sampled using the technique developed for the Fish and Wildlife Service by Dr. T.R. Wentworth and G.P. Johnson, North Carolina State University. Good correlations were observed between soils on the Soil Conservation Service's hydric soils list and hydrophytic vegetation identified in the National Wetland Plant List (1986) developed by the Fish and Wildlife Service. However, one soil not on the list supported hydrophic vegetation.
