    Description

    The diverse natural communities in the Hoosier-Shawnee Ecological Assessment Area include forests, barrens, cliffs, wetlands, and streams. Communities are described based on their dominant and characteristic canopy and understory species as well as abiotic factors. An assessment of the global and state status of plant species is presented; the viability of over 360 species is threatened in the region. A review of 26 exotic plant species in the region is also presented.
