GDM Classification of New Zealand Biotic Composition for Trees and Shrubs 101 groups

07 Oct 2011

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 07 Oct 2011.

This layer provides a classification of New Zealand ecosystems according to tree and shrub composition. Generalized Dissimilarity Modelling was used to produce a model of biotic composition in relation ship to environment and biogeography. This model was used to transform and scale environmental layers to predict community composition. The transformed environmental layers were then used to classify New Zealand into areas of similar biotic composition. The biotic data used for this model include all non-fern tree and shrub taxa from NVS recce data and estimated community compositions from pollen data.
