The Palustrine(see species from the Riparian Woodland) has species joined by moist adapted or (mesic) trees like white ash, hackberry, and American elm. In some places these trees assume dominance over silver maple, box elder, and sycamore. Occasionally sparse numbers of black cherry and black walnut trees are found in this woodland.  There are also several different species of fauna that live in this area.
