Here are all the findings from this Floristic Quality Assessment: June 2006. All values are calculated live from the species list reported for this region at this time.

Description

Another random choice of plants, this time beginning with an earlier study’s findings that are then edited.

Detailed Findings

Here are the summary data from this study. Please note the following:

  • Results are based on the species found during this evaluation — listed in the section below.
  • These data are calculated from Kansas coefficient of conservatism data.
  • You can browse lists of species that have various CoCs in the "Conservation of Conservatism Tallies" row below.
  • Floristic Quality Indices have these general meanings:

    < 20 Definitely degraded
    20-25 Possibly degraded; restoration potential
    25-30 Quality natural area
    > 35 Really special natural area
