The Black Hills is often seen as ecological crossroads, with plant communities representative of the Rocky Mountains, Great Plains, northern boreal forests, and eastern deciduous forests. This wide variety of habitats in turn supports a diverse collection of plant species. The Black Hills is home to over 1500 plant species, 17 of which are regionally designated as sensitive species.
