OHIO PLANTS SPECIES LISTS
CC VALUES (coefficients of conservatism)
OHIO FLORISTIC QUALITY
Coefficients of conservatism (CC) assigned to each species by Andreas et al. (2002). The CC, with values ranging from 0 to 10, is an estimate of the degree to which a species is associated with high-quality natural communities similar to those which existed in pre-settlement times. Exotic (alien, introduced) species are not assigned CC values.
