Abstract: Riverscour is a disturbance-prone riparian ecosystem of high-gradient rocky rivers that harbors a unique flora adapted to flooding and edaphically extreme conditions.... The vascular flora of riverscour communities along Daddy's Creek was surveyed through 17 collection trips from July 2013 to May 2016. A total of 421 taxa, comprised of 409 species in 266 genera and 103 families, was documented. Thirteen state-listed species were observed, including two federally-listed species and five new watershed records, of which the discovery of single population of "Helenium brevifolium" is the only know extant population in Tennessee.
Total Taxa (details): 42
