- Cultivated habitat
- A geographical feature modified by humans by the preparation of the land, usually for the purposes of growing crops.

- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
- Grams per cubic centimeter. A mass unit density which is equal to mass of an object in grams divided by the volume in cubic centimeters.
- An enclosure for displaying selected plant or animal life.
- The natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population.

- Introduced range includes
- Lists jurisdictions in which a given organism has been introduced recently.
- Invasive/noxious listings
- Indicates whether a taxon is listed on a global or regional list of invasive organisms or whether it has special legal status due to its negative impact on human welfare or ecosystems.
- Area of dry or relatively dry land surrounded by water or low wetland.
- A mound of earth material, at the base of a slope and the associated scoured area.
- Life cycle habit
- Determined for type of life cycle being annual, binneal, perennial etc.
- A wetland found in upland areas, characterised by acidic soils.

- Plant growth habit
- The general growth form of a plant - its size and branching - also its woodiness. Some plants have different growth habits depending on environment or location, so a plant can have more than one value.

- An elevated and comparatively level expanse of land.
- Area covered with low-growing or stunted perennial vegetation and usually not mixed with trees.
- Shrubland biome
- A shrubland biome is a terrestrial biome which includes, across its entire spatial extent, dense groups of shrubs.
- Perennial, woody plant with a single stem (trunk), normally greater than 4 to 5 meters (13 to 16 feet) in height; under certain environmental conditions, some tree species may develop a multi-stemmed or short growth form (less than 4 meters or 13 feet in height).

- Wetland Indicator Status (NWPL)
- Five indicator statuses, or ratings, are used in the United States National Wetland Plant List to designate a plant species’ preference for occurrence in a wetland or upland: Upland (UPL), Facultative Upland (FACU), Facultative (FAC), Facultative Wetland (FACW), and Obligate Wetland (OBL). The statuses represent the estimated probability of a species occurring in wetlands versus nonwetlands in a region.
