Wetland plant species of common occurrence on geomorphic surfaces of high inundation potential included Glyceria melicaria, Galium asprellum, Impatiens capensis, Polygonum sagittatum, Aster umbellatus and Chelone glabra (Table 3).
For example, the ground-layer guild of geomorphic surfaces of high inundation potential, typified by relatively high species richness, biomass, cover and the general shade-intolerance of the flora (especially the graminoids), would include dominant wetland species such as Glyceria melicaria, Galium asprellum, Impatiens capensis, Oxalis stricta, Aster umbellatus, Chelone glabra and Polygonum sagittatum, among others (Table 3).
