Relevés are given a Fossitt habitat code when included in the National Vegetation Database (NVD). The main habitat categories are shown in the pie chart below. The figures are based on the 26,412 relevés that were geo-referenced and had all the mandatory requirements associated with them at the end of the data capture phase in 2012.
Pie chart showing the breakdown of all relevés in the NVD to level one Fossitt habitat categories. Numbers in the chart refer to the number of relevés in each Fossitt habitat category.
Marine relevés are not generally included in the NVD at present. The 28 marine relevés were recorded generally as part of surveys of terrestrial or brackish water habitats. The NVD currently deals with terrestrial vegetation and does not adequately cater for marine habitats as yet.
