Vegetation Condition Benchmarks Cover and Richness raw data V1.2

Vegetation Condition Benchmarks describe the reference state to which sites are compared to score their site-scale biodiversity values or set goals for management or restoration. This dataset contains some of the raw data used to create the most current vegetation condition benchmarks. Refer to the 'Dataset relationship' section, below, to access all the raw data used in creating the Vegetation Condition Benchmarks V1.2.

The 'Vegetation Condition Benchmarks Cover and Richness raw data V1.2' file contains the 36,335 records derived from full-floristic plots that were used to model growth form richness and cover benchmarks. Refer to the info worksheet for further details of column headings.
