From the US Forest Service, a set of resources about native plants (especially wildflowers) and how to avoid or replace dangerous exotics:

Basic info on ecoregions from the National Wildlife Federation:

Ecoregion mapping from the US Forest Service:

U.S. Forest Service, Gardening for Wildlife:

I like to curl up with a hot cup of tea and use these links to plan for Spring. Lots more to come on the Southeast/Tennessee/Nashville Basin!
