Abstract:

Large scale 110000, 150000 mapping, involving mainly descriptions of key sections by geobotanists, soil scientists, geomorphologists, landscape scientists and others, as well as topographic surveys initially and aerial photo interpretation subsequently is discussed, with reference to production of landscape and geobotanical maps. Detailed data were gathered on over 1400 plots of 25 m radius in a 13 sq cm section. Map-diagram and statistical analysis was applied to the data to develop the areas and boundaries of the geobotanical fascies and associations.
