Illinois <<return to state

Southern Illinois is home to oak-hickory forests, bald cypress swamps, and the famous Garden of the Gods wilderness area and rock formations. The forests of southern Illinois are part of the larger Central Hardwoods region (also referred to as Eastern Broadleaf Forest) that encompasses much of the east-central United States. Climate change is an additional stressor that could interact with, and in many cases worsen, current stressors to Central Hardwoods ecosystems in Illinois.
