Holt1, Linda Derry2, and Jonathan Matthews2 Abstract - The Old Cahawba Forever Wild Tract (OCFWT) is a 1216-ha property that was acquired by the State of Alabama Forever Wild Program in August 2009. The OCFWT is characterized by Black Belt prairie pockets, upland dry/calcareous forest, Pinus taeda (Loblolly Pine) plantations, and bottomland/floodplain forest. The property lies 14 km southwest of Selma, AL, and is bordered to the northeast by the Cahaba River. The site is managed by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources with an emphasis on recreational use and habitat management. An intensive floristic study of this area was conducted from January 2010 through July 2013. A total of 691 taxa (690 species) from 411 genera and 139 families were collected, with 280 taxa being county records. Asteraceae was the most-collected family with 74 species. Poaceae, Fabaceae, and Cyperaceae were the next most-represented families with 63, 57, and 29 species, respectively. Quercus was the most-collected genus, represented by 13 species and two named hybrids. One hundred and thirty-three non-native species were collected during the surveys. One introduced species, Oxalis brasiliensis G. Lodd, was determined to be a North American record. Plant collections were deposited at the Alabama Natural Heritage Section Herbarium (ALNHS), with duplicates deposited at the Anniston Museum of Natural History Herbarium (AMAL), Jacksonville State University Herbarium (JSU), and Auburn University Herbarium (AUA). Introduction The Forever Wild Program was originally established in 1992 by an Alabama constitutional amendment (Satterfield and Waddell 1993); the program was overwhelmingly reauthorized (75% of the popular vote) by a statewide referendum vote in 2012. The program provides public lands for recreational use along with conservation of vital habitat. Since its inception, the Forever Wild Program, managed by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (AL-DCNR), has purchased approximately 93,600 ha (231,300 acres) of land for general recreation, nature preserves, additions to wildlife management areas, and state parks. For each Forever Wild tract purchased, a management plan providing guidelines and recommendations for the tract must be in place within a year of acquisition. The 1217-ha (3007-acre) Old Cahawba Forever Wild Tract (OCFWT) was acquired on 29 August 2009. The parcel includes a portion of the Big Swamp Creek drainage near its western boundary and is bounded to the northeast by the longest free-flowing river in Alabama, the Cahaba River. 1State Lands Division, Natural Heritage Section, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, 64 North Union Street, Montgomery, AL 36130. 2Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, 9518 Cahaba Road, Orrville, AL 36767. *Corresponding author - wayne_barger@ yahoo.com. Manuscript Editor: Jovonn Hill Southeastern Naturalist 289 T.W. Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 The OCFWT abuts the historic grounds of Old Cahawba Archaeological Park, the site of Alabama’s first state capital (1819–1825). This 286-ha (707-acre) property, located at the confluence of the Cahaba and Alabama Rivers, is also owned by the State of Alabama and was included in this study. The combined study area of the two properties is 1503 ha (3714 acres) and will be referred to hereafter as the OCFWT. This study represents the first systematic inventory of the vascular flora for these areas and provides many county records for Dallas County, which has a poorly surveyed flora. With a few notable exceptions (Barone and Hill 2007, Campbell and Seymour 2011, Gunn 1985), the flora of the Black Belt in both Alabama and Mississippi remain poorly surveyed. Much of the prairie land located in the Black Belt has been lost (Barone 2005), with land-use changes driving this loss. The remaining fragments are dwindling and face threats from agricultural use, residential and commercial development, exotic and invasive species, woody encroachment, and erosion. Description of Study Area The 1503-ha study site is located in central, rural Dallas County, AL (32.293– 32.337°N, 87.096–87.169°W; Fig. 1). Elevations on the tract range from 30 m to approximately 80 m above sea level. In 2010, Dallas County had an estimated population of 43,820 and total area of 2535 km2, resulting in a relatively low population density of 17 people per km2 (US Census Bureau 2013). Located approximately 14 km southwest of Selma (Dallas County, AL) and 74 km west of Montgomery (Montgomery County, AL), the OCFWT was acquired in order to secure and restore dwindling Blackland Prairie habitat and also to offer a myriad of recreational opportunities to the public. The OCFWT lies within the upper Coastal Plain physiographic province and is located at the nexus of three Level IV Ecoregions: 1) Blackland Prairie, 2) Flatwood Blackland Prairie Margin, and the riverway-influenced 3) Floodplains and Low Terraces (Griffith et al. 2001, NatureServe 2013). The vegetation and undulating terrain of the OCFWT consists of remnant prairie pockets that are surrounded by mixed hardwood forests, Pinus taeda L. (Loblolly Pine) plantations, pastureland, and steep cliffs near the Alabama and Cahaba Rivers. The calcareous soils of the tract are Cretaceous/Tertiary-aged soils characterized by pockets of poorly drained, heavy clay soils that are sticky when wet and highly contractible upon drying (T.W. Barger, pers. observ.). The parcel consists of sandy, flat floodplains; steep chalky riverbanks; riverswamp forests of Taxodium distichum (L.) Rich. (Bald-Cypress)/oak/tupelo; and steep uplands, mostly supporting Loblolly Pine monocultures (USDA NRCS 2013). The termperature for the area averages a July and August high of 33 °C and a January low of 2 °C, with an average of 235 frost-free days per year (Weather.com 2013). Rainfall averages approximately 135 cm (53 inches) per year; typically, March is the wettest month and October is the driest (Weather.com 2013). Estimations of area occupied by the different plant communities present on the OCFWT are approximately as follows: 10% Prairie Land (generally Southeastern Naturalist T.W. Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 290 composed of Andropogon spp., Desmanthus illinoensis [Illinois Bundleflower], Juniperus virginiana [Eastern Red-cedar], Rosa bracteata [Macartney Rose], Schizachyrium scoparium [Little Bluestem], Silphium perplexum [Old Cahawba Rosinweed]); 5% Upland Dry Hardwood/Calcareous Forest (generally composed of Carya spp. [hickories], Quercus spp. [oaks]); 65% Ruderal/Impacted/Loblolly Monoculture (generally comprised of Ligustrum sinense [Chinese Privet], Liquidambar styraciflua [American Sweetgum], Liriope spicata [Creeping Liriope], Melia azedarach [Chinaberry], Loblolly Pine, Populus deltoides [Eastern Cottonwood], Rubus spp. (blackberries), and Smilax spp. [greenbriers]); and 20% Bottomland/Mixed Floodplain Forest (generally composed of Acer spp. [maples], Celtis laevigata [Sugarberry], Fraxinus caroliniana [Carolina Ash], Magnolia virginiana var. australis [Sweetbay], Nyssa sylvatica [Blackgum], oaks, and Sabal minor [Dwarf Palmetto]). Figure 1. Location and surrounding land use of the Old Cahawba Forever Wild Tract and Archaeological Park in Dallas County, AL. Southeastern Naturalist 291 T.W. Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 Historical Land Use Once a bustling center of American commerce, the town of Cahawba (sometimes mistakenly spelled Cahaba) and the adjacent land of the Forever Wild Tract were the epicenter of the fourth wealthiest US county (Dallas County, AL) per capita in 1860. Now a ghost-town, Cahawba served as Alabama’s state capital from 1819–1825. However, Cahawba’s impact on the surrounding land is still evident with railroad embankments, roadways, homesteads, antebellum plantations, and early settler/Civil War-era cemeteries. One pioneering farming family, the Kirkpatricks, rose to prominence after the Civil War by becoming early adopters of crop diversification (their lands included large pecan orchards, saddle horses, hogs, a large dairy, and other row crops) (Meador 2009). This diversification from cotton had a major impact on the landscape of the area, demonstrated today by remnants of the immense pecan orchards. Today, intense row-crop farming, roadways, and Loblolly Pine plantations have further fragmented this area. Methods The systematic sampling of the OCFWT flora was conducted from January 2010 through July 2013. The study area was surveyed utilizing a modified meandering method similar to that of Goff et al. (1982). When possible, plants were collected in a manner (i.e., top-snatched) that was non-destructive for the populations sampled. Because of the size of the OCFWT, the natural divisions of the property, and the frequency of survey visits, we were able to thoroughly sample the tract. Voucher specimens were collected and identified by the authors. Verifications were subsequently made by Dan Spaulding, Curator of the Anniston Museum of Natural History and deposited at the Natural Heritage Section Herbarium (ALNHS). We deposited duplicates at the Anniston Museum of Natural History Herbarium (AMAL), Jacksonville State University Herbarium (JSU), and Auburn University Herbarium (AUA). Plant identifications, comparison of related species, and state records were determined using the following: Alabama Plant Atlas (Kral et al. 2013); Flora of the Southern and Mid-Atlantic States (Weakley 2013); Guide to the Vascular Plants of the Florida Panhandle (Clewell 1985); Aquatic and Wetland Plants of the Southeastern United States. Dicotyledons (Godfrey and Wooten 1981); Aquatic and Wetland Plants of the Southeastern United States. Monocotyledons (Godfrey and Wooten 1979); Manual of the Grasses of the United States. Volumes I and II (Hitchcock 1971); Manual of the Vascular Flora of the Carolinas (Radford et al. 1968); and Plant Life of Alabama (Mohr 1901). Guidelines for construction of this flora followed recommendations outlined by Palmer et al. (1995). Placement of species at the family rank and binomials follow Weakley (2013). Abbreviations for authorities and nativity of species follow Kartesz (2013). Results and Discussion Vegetation survey summary Samples obtained from the OCFWT included a total of 691 taxa representing 690 species, 411 genera, and 139 families, with 280 taxa (40%) ascertained to Southeastern Naturalist T.W. Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 292 be county records for Dallas County (Kartesz 2013). Asteraceae was the mostcollected family with 74 species. Poaceae, Fabaceae, and Cyperaceae were the next most-represented families with 63, 57, and 29 species, respectively. Quercus was the most-collected genus, represented by 13 species and two named hybrids. Flowering plants comprised 96% of the flora, with dicots making up 74% and monocots the remaining 22% (Table 1). Ferns and fern allies followed with 3%, and conifers represented 1% of the total number of taxa sampled. One hundred and thirty-three species, or 19%, were introduced species (non-native to North America). Selected rare and notable plant species We found many notable rare, undercollected, or regionally uncommon species while conducting this flora, including: the Alabama endemic Silphium perplexum (Old Cahawba Rosinweed), the federally listed Apios priceana (Price’s Potatobean), Corallorhiza wisteriana (Spring Coralroot), Isoetes melanopoda ssp. sylvatica (Eastern Black-foot Quillwort), Trillium lancifolium (Lanceleaf Trillium), and Polygala boykinii (Boykin’s Milkwort). Endemic to remnant Black Belt prairie sites over chalk in two west-central Alabama counties (Dallas and Perry Counties), Old Cahawba Rosinweed is a G1 species and is considered very rare throughout its range (Kartesz 2013, Nature- Serve 2013). Currently, all known populations of Old Cahawba Rosinweed are within 13.5 km of the Cahaba River, with the collections made for this study occurring only a few meters from the type locality (Allison and Stevens 2001). Typically flowering from July to October and fruiting from August to frost, Old Cahawba Rosinweed has yellow ray and disk florets, heads normally with 17 or more ray florets, lanceolate leaves up to 30 cm long, stems 150–200 cm, and glandular hairs that are approximately the same length as pointed hairs covering the plant (Allison and Stevens 2001). The general appearance of the plant is very similar to Silphium glutinosum J. Allison, which prefers soils over limestone or dolomite and normally has 13 rays per head (Allison and Stevens 2001). Old Cahawba Rosinweed may have been spared extirpation from the OCFWT (or even extinction across its range) because of its unpalatability to grazing livestock (Allison and Stevens 2001). Table 1.

Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 Additionally, the clayey soil characteristics of some prairie soils could have spared rosinweed habitat from timber monocultures. Price’s Potato-bean was listed federally as threatened in 1990 and is currently known from 10 Alabama counties (Kartesz 2013). Price’s Potato-bean is thinly scattered over about 30 populations throughout its distribution outside of Alabama in southwestern Kentucky, central Tennessee, and northeastern Mississippi (Kartesz 2013, NatureServe 2013). This imperiled G2 species is commonly found on calcareous soils in open mixed hardwood forests/forest edges, especially over limestone (Weakley 2013) and is seemingly intolerant to deep shade. Price’s Potato- bean produces only a single large tuber from which the twining vine arises; the close relative, Apios americana Medik. (Common Groundnut), produces a string of numerous small tubers along its rootstock. Distinguishing features of the flowers, along with slight differences in leaves, legumes, and seeds, also set Price’s Potatobean apart from Common Groundnut. Often found in somewhat clayey-sandy soils of flat low-woods, Eastern Blackfoot Quillwort is rare in the southeastern US and has been reliably documented from only five Alabama counties (D.F. Brunton, Brunton Consulting Services, Ottawa, ON, Canada, pers. comm.). Eastern Black-foot Quillwort has been reported from 10 other US counties, arcing from Virginia south-southwest through the Carolinas and Georgia; the seemingly more common Isoetes melanopoda ssp. melanopoda (Black-foot Quillwort) has a wide range throughout the Midwest to the Great Plains, south to Texas. Exotic plant species Eighty-five of the 133 non-native plant taxa collected were considered county records for Dallas County (Kartesz 2013). The percentage of exotics collected (19%) during this study is slightly higher than that found in other floras conducted in the state. Other Alabama floras yielded the following percentages of exotics: the 7365-ha Perdido River Forever Wild Tract yielded 11% non-natives (Barger et al. 2013), the 240-ha Indian Mountain Forever Wild Tract yielded 11% non-natives (Barger and Holt 2010), the 130-ha Coon Creek Forever Wild Tract yielded 7% non-natives (Barger and Tenaglia 2008), 2528-ha Lake Guntersville State Park yielded 17% non-natives (Spaulding 1999), the 28,329-ha Talladega Ranger District in Talladega National Forest yielded 12% non-natives (Ballard 1995), and 1101-ha Cheaha State Park yielded 10% non-natives (Bussey 1983). The slightly higher percentage of non-natives was likely due to the naturalization of many cultivated plants introduced by the residents of Old Cahawba. While this study did not focus on quantitative measurements of the exotic plant coverage, the observed land area covered by these non-native plants was restricted to primarily ruderal or disturbed areas of the tract. The most commonly encountered non-native plant species, in order of relative abundance, were: Chinese Privet, Lonicera japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle), Albizia julibrissin (Silktree), Daucus carota (Queen Anne's Lace), and the combined Trifolium spp. (clovers) and Vicia spp. (vetches). One non-native plant collection of note was Oxalis brasiliensis (Brazilian Wood-sorrel). As outlined in Horne et al. (2013), before discovery of this large Southeastern Naturalist T.W. Barger, B.D. Holt, L. Derry, and J. Matthews 2014 Vol. 13, No. 2 294 population (dense clumps, forming mats that stretch for approximately 2.5 km) on the OCFWT, Brazilian Wood-sorrel had not been reported as a naturalized species for North America. A full species description and additional information on related Oxalis species were also covered in detail in Horne et al. (2013).
