  2. 2. Grassland – Savanna- Forest
  3. 3. Grassland – Savanna- Forest
  4. 4. Grassland – Savanna- Forest
  5. 5. Available Soil Moisture- the over riding environmental factor determining the disposition of plant communities Shade Tolerance- All plants require light, shade is a limiting factor to growth. Hightshoe provides an index for shade tolerance (very tolerant- tolerantintermediate) Mesic- a habitat with moderate soil water content and well drained Xeric- a habitat with low soil water content and high evaporation rate Moisture and Topographic Gradients- various habitats that range in conditions from lowland to upland, wet to drier conditions (see next 5 habitat designations lowland wet to upland dry)
  6. 6. Lowland Wet- river margins, streamside floodplain depression, subject to frequent inundation (seasonal flooding), high water table, poor drainage area (OBL – FACW) Lowland Wet-Mesic- alluvial bottomlands, elevated terraces of major streams, areas of intermittent flooding but of short duration, excess moisture in winter or spring, nearly xeric conditions during midsummer (FACW-FAC) Upland Mesic- ravines, sheltered coves, moist but well drained slopes and uplands, generally north and east facing slopes, protected from sun exposure and prevailing dry winds, less dry conditions (FACU) Upland Mesic-Dry- dry slopes, upland flats, generally warmer south and west facing slopes, direct sun exposure created drier conditions (FACU) Upland Dry-high banks, cliffs, steep rocky land, excessively drained sandy soil or shallow stoney soil over rock outcrop (UPL)
  7. 7. • OBL = Obligate Wetland Plants Almost always occur in wetlands • FACW = Facultative Wetland Plants Usually occur in wetlands, but may occur in non-wetlands • FAC = Facultative Wetland Plants Occur in wetlands and non-wetlands • FACU = Facultative Upland Plants Usually occur in non-wetlands, but may occur in wetlands • UPL= Upland Plants Almost never occur in wetlands
