C-value

Applies to Chicago area native plants; C-values are from Swink & Wilheim's Plant of the Chicago Region (used for natural areas). They represent whether a plant is likely to occur in a remnant natural plant community. A value of 0 indicates little confidence that it came from a remnant natural plant community. A value of 10 indicates high probability that it did come from one.
