Summary
Abstract: The Central Mojave Special Features map shows point locations for known or
potential places where vegetation alliances or unique stands with less than 5
hectares (ha) of spatial extent occur. Many vegetation types in the Mojave
Desert rarely, if ever, occur in stands greater than 5 ha in area. The target
standard for the Central Mojave Vegetation Map is a 5 ha minimum mapping unit
(MMU), and the ... View entire text
