Image Number D2934-1

Final ecological-state map designations with an example of coding. The three-number code within an ecological-state area means that there is more than one ecological state within that area. Each number represents one ecological state, and the numbers are listed in order of the extent of the ecological state within that area. For instance, “Gravelly 540” means that the area is characterized by a gravelly ecological state, 5 means that much of the site is covered with expanded shrublands/woodlands, 4 means that some of the site is shrub-dominated, and 0 indicates that this site does not have a third ecological state category.
