Forest Ecosystems, South Coast Sub-region VIS_ID 3786

This is the original extant Forest Ecosystem map for the South Coast sub-region, comprising a number of different models and API data. Expert botanists developed the map within extant vegetation, by assigning API polygons to vegetation groups, determined by an ecological classification process using PATN software. The processes used were approved and signed off by a review team of expert botanists including two independents, one NPWS representative and one SFNSW representative. On cleared land, a combination of soils, GAMs modelling, and classified site data was used to assign vegetation groups to distinct topographic and soil patterns. The extant map was derived from masking the pre-1750 map to the extant vegetation. 101 distinct ecosystems have been mapped in the extant map for this sub-region.; ; VIS_ID 3786; ; ANZLIC: ANZNS0208000141

Note that this map was superseded by VIS_IDs 3858 & 3859
