Got a question to throw out there. I'm a student and fairly new to the wetlands world. I'm surveying some plots in the mid-atlantic region and trying to use the 50/20 rule for dominants. My question is how does it come into play in regard to invasives. I have some plots with stiltgrass all over the place. Are invasives counted when tallying up percentages in my subplots and then not counted when applying the 50/20 rule?? I'm not sure and would like to hear any advice from you all out there.
Thank you in advance!
