Little to no canopy herbacous wetlands with hydric sandy soils. Low intensity frequennt (1-5yr) ground layer fires.
Distinguished by (Aristida beyrichiana), beakrush (Rhynchospora), pitcher plants (Sarracenia), pipewort (Eriocaulon), and sundews (Drosera). Minor canopy possible. Flat topography with a diverse, continuous groundcover assocatied with flatwoods. Water source precipitation
Distinguished by shallow depression embeeded within uplands or flatwoods distinguised by concentric zones of vegetation including maiden maidencane (Panicum hemitomon), yellow-eyed grasses (Xyris elliottii), St John’s wort (Hypericum). Other dminants include pickerelweed (Pontedaria cordata), beakrushes (Rhynchospora) and hatpins (Eriocaulon). No canopy. Water source precipitation with seasonal standing water.
Distinguihsed by slope on edge of upland with contstant saturation from a perched water table associated with upland pine and scrub with wiregrass (Aristida), beakrushes (Rhynchospora) and pitcherplants (Sarracenia). Water source precipitation and seepage.
