In addition to Pond Pine, determining species include herbivores that appear to be specialists on that species or that at least have the majority of their occurrences in Coastal Plain peatlands.

Nr = Number of Ranked Species = 3
Ner = Number of Extant, Ranked Species = 3
Nv = Number of Historic and Extirpated Species = 0
Nar = Number of Species at Risk of Extirpation (State rank > S5) = 2
Nss = Number of Secure Species (State Rank = S5) = 1
Pss = Proportion of Secure Species (Nss/Ner) = 0.33333
ENE = Expected Number of Extirpations (Sum of PE) = 0.00404
Average PE (ENE/Ner) = 0.00135
Habitat Risk Index = (Nar+Nv) x Average PE = 2 x 0.00135 = 0.0027
