detailed support information - vegetation
Which vegetation type is dominant within the map unit? Select one.
Dominance is based on height and density of branches and foliage. This means if shrubs and trees appear to be of equal density, trees would be the dominant type. Similarly, if shrubs and grasses appear to be of equal density, shrubs would be the dominant type over grasses. The specific shrub and tree height ranges in the responses are based on ecological literature.
