Coastal Plain Wet-Hydric Floodplains
No image for this habitat.
Habitat Overview As in the General Wet-Hydric Floodplains, this habitat is defined by species that are restricted to forests growing in bottomlands, swamps, and the forested edges of lakes and impoundments. This group is further restricted in that the members occur nearly exclusively in the Coastal Plain, possibly due to its milder winters and more extensive areas of swamps and other wetlands; all species in this group require semi-permanent pools for breeding or foraging or that depend on such species as their major source of food.
