Description

A number of rare species occur in cove forests, including the endangered persistent trillium, Trillium persistens. The species is found in deeply incised coves and gorges (acidic coves) in South Carolina along Battle Creek. This species is officially considered endangered by the federal government. The main threat to most rare species is loss of habitat due to humans altering the landscape.
