Abstract:This report documents the vegetation parameters relevant to the performance standards in bioswales from sample data collected in June and September 2015, the final year of monitoring. Species composition, diversity (based on species richness and species density), percent cover, and floristic quality from 2015 sample data are described and compared to previous sample data. Vegetation trends from the 2011 baseline are examined and a comparison is made between the baseline and 2015 final sample data.
