Early Succesional and Semi-Natural Habitats
Exotic Invaded Habitats
No image for this habitat.
General Description This habitat is defined by the presence of exotic, invasive species and covers essentially the entire range of environmental conditions as the set of natural habitats. Determining species include any species not native to North Carolina and that has reached our area with human help, deliberate or otherwise.

Expected Number of Extirpations with a PE value (Sum of PE) = 0.0007
N = Number of Extant Species with a PE value = 1
Average PE = ENE/N = 0.0007
Number of S5 species = 2
Proportion of Secure Species = Number of S5 Species/N = 2.0000
Habitat Risk Index = ENE x (1 – PSS) = -0.0007
