Plynlimon research catchments: vegetation map

Vegetation map of Plynlimon catchments. The vegetation map was created for assisting with identifying soil survey vegetation boundaries, and is not an authoritative vegetation survey. The defined vegetation classes correspond with the classes defined in CEH Land Cover Map 2000 (LCM 2000). LCM2000 was classified using a hierarchical nomenclature corresponding to the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) Broad Habitats which encompasses the entire range of UK habitats.
