Abstract : This literature survey contains published information on wetlands vegetation of Alaska prior to September, 1977. The literature review and summaries are organized under the broad habitat categories of: (a) freshwater wetlands (ponds and lakes, freshwater marshes, peatlands, streams, and riparian gravel bars and cutbanks), and (b) saline or brackish water wetlands (strands and supratidal meadows, saline or brackish marshes, and intertidal zones). The floristics and vegetation of these categories are discussed on a regional basis which includes Southeastern Alaska, Southeastern Alaska, Southcentral Alaska, Aleutian Islands, Bering Sea Islands, Bering Sea Mainland, Chukchi Sea, Beaufort Sea, and Interior Alaska.
