Fig. 3. The ecosystem status of each of the 64 vegetation types in the planning domain. In (a), the number of vegetation types in each category is listed in the legend. Note that 20 vegetation types meet their targets in protected areas (status = Monitoring), and thus all fall on the same, single symbol. Values are assigned to ecosystem status as follows: critically endangered = 4, endangered = 3, vulnerable = 2, least threatened = 1 and monitoring = 0. These values are used to calculate the biodiversity value in Figure 7a. Below, Fig. (b) shows the distribution of the ecosystem status of vegetation types within the corridor network only.
