Missouri <<return to state

The Ozark Highlands region of Missouri is home to a mosaic of forests, open woodlands, savannas, and prairies. The ecosystems of the Missouri Ozark Highlands 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 Hardwood ecosystems in Missouri.
