Mississippi lowland forests

WWF Abstract

These forests were once very similar to the magnificent bottomland forests that occur along rivers in the Mid-Atlantic coastal region. However, nearly all of the riparian forests here are now gone, making this one of the most altered ecoregions in the United States. The oak-hickory-pine forests of the Mississippi lowlands still serve as an important part of a major flyway used by migratory birds.
