DescriptionThe ability to detect and monitor exotic invasive plants is likely to vary depending on the sampling method employed. Methods with strong qualitative thoroughness for species detection often lack the intensity necessary to monitor vegetation change. Four sampling methods (systematic plot, stratified-random plot, modified Whittaker, and timed meander) in hemlock and red oak forests in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area were compared for their ability to detect and monitor understory exotic invasive plant species.
