The distribution and population densities of a federal listed threatened plant species, the northern joint vetch (Aeschynomene virginica), was determined and mapped in the vicinity of a proposed Mattaponi River water withdrawal structure. The proposed study was intended to determine the size, limits, and density of extant populations of the northern joint vetch in the project area, and to investigate the possible impacts the project may have on the extant populations. Where necessary, . possible mitigation procedures are discussed.
