Taxonomic Clarification Required
'plant species' = names in inverted commas indicate that taxonomic changes have occurred since the survey and that subsequent research is required to positively identify this species
(SYN) = indicates that the plant species name used is a synonym name
(NC) = indicates that the plant species is a non valid name which has been superseded by taxonomic changes

**Cover Abundance Codes
R - Solitary plant
T - sparsely present; cover small (less than 5%)
