 Interpretation Guide


Northern pin oak is a narrowly distributed (2.1% of area), sparse, but high IV species commonly found in the northwestern portion of the study region and with a medium reliable model suggesting an increase in suitable habitat in future (though still classed as 'No change' because of it only occupies 2.1% of the area). The SHIFT model suggests some of that new northern habitat could get colonized naturally within 100 years. It has a high adaptability rating, and an overall rating of good capability to deal with the changing climate.



Family:  Fagaceae

Guild:  persistent, large seeded, advance growth dependent
