Description:

SAFARI 2000 NBI Vegetation Map of the Savannas of Southern Africa.

Summary / Notes:

The objective of the National Botanical Institute's (NBI) vegetation mapping project was to map woody plant species to provide estimates of the fraction of individual species contributing to the peak leaf area index for designated vegetation types in southern Africa. The target was to account for 80% of the woody vegetation leaf area in terms of named species, for 80% of the surface area of Africa south of the equator.
