Winter biomass and nutrient contents were determined for five central New York wetlands. The sites dominated by Carex lacustris and C. rostrata were characterized by having a relatively large aboveground standing crop and a corresponding high nutrient content in those tissues. The sites dominated by Carex lanuginosa, Sparganium eurycarpum, and Typha glauca had small aboveground, but massive belowground, standing crops. Nutrient supply in these species was concentrated in belowground tissues. All species had large winter biomass values ranging from 610 g/m2 in Carex lacustris to 1158 g/m2 in Typha glauca.
