4. In temperate zones within the US herbaceous species are generally the earliest stage of ecological succession.
5. Earthworm presence in a woodland soil indicates an optimal condition for plant establishment.

10. Cool season European grasses are generally mat forming.
11. Coefficients of Conservatism refers to the elevation in which a plant commonly occurs.

13. Habitat Fidelity refers to the need for a plant to grow in a highly fertile condition.
14. Ecotone refers to a transitional area between two different vegetation types.
