Abstract : The primary objective of this study was to determine which species of non-vascular plants and ferns which occur in the Illinois and Mississippi River floodplains are rare or endangered. Other objectives were to list the habitats in which these species occur, in what medium or on what substrate, and the possible impacts on these plants by increased barge traffic. (Author)
