Appendices

Appendix A: A figure showing the major vegetation ecosystem types in the study region.
Ecological Archives A022-100-A1.

Appendix B: Two box-and-whisker-plot figures showing the range of temperature, precipitation, and elevation found in the case-study region.

Appendix C: A figure showing the geographic distribution of the vascular plant survey plots.

Appendix D: A histogram of the plots in relation to their estimated greenspot index values. A total of 5099 survey plots fell within native vegatation cover

Appendix E: A table showing for each greenspot index percentile threshold, the number of grid cells from where the vascular plant survey plots are located, the number of plots, and the sampling proportion.
Ecological Archives A022-100-A5.

Appendix F: A table listing the geographic coordinates of the selected cells used in Fig. 3 to show the greenspot index time series for the dry sclerophyll coast/montane ecosystem type.
Ecological Archives A022-100-A6.

Appendix G: Five figures showing the fPAR time-series values for a set of grid cells for a selection of vegetation ecosystem types and greenspot thresholds. "No GT" indicates that the treshold exceeds 95%.

Appendix H: Eight figures showing the distribution of ecosystem greenspot index values in relation to the aspect, slope, and topographic position of the corresponding grid cell.
Ecological Archives A022-100-A8.

Appendix I: Two maps depicting the geographic variation in species composition as represented by the three-dimensional PCA analysis of the generalized dissimilarity modeling (GDM) modeling of 4,268 vascular plant species in the case study region.
