FACW – Facultative Wetland species Plants that usually occur in wetlands (estimated probability 67% - 99%), but occasionally are found in non-wetlands. FAC – Facultative species Plants equally likely to occur in wetlands or non-wetlands (estimated probability 34%-66% in wetlands). FACU – Facultative Upland species Plants usually found in non-wetlands (estimated 67%-99%), but on occasionally found in wetlands (estimated: 1%-33%). UPL – Obiligate Upland species Plants almost always found in non-wetlands (estimated probability > 99%).
