This collection includes spatially delineated ecosystem types for the Central Highlands Region of Victoria as published by Fedrigo et al. (2019; see link). Two datasets are provided: 1) the Predictive... more Ecosystem Mapping (PEM) model derived by applying rulesets to a lidar-derived classification and distribution models for key species that delineate ecosystems in the region, and 2) the Victorian Ecological Vegetation Classes (EVCs) reclassified to align with those used in the study.
The PEM model delineates the ecotone (cool temperate mixed forest) between cool temperate rainforest and Eucalypt forest across the Central Highlands Region of Victoria as defined in the manuscript.

This global spatial layer of contextual intactness aims to identify priority areas around the world where protection and management will best promote biodiversity persistence. This layer was derived b... morey integrating both the condition of each focal location and the condition of all other locations expected to have supported shared species with the focal location prior to any habitat degradation. The contextual intactness of each location (grid cell) is the proportion of habitat predicted to have once supported a similar assemblage of species but is now in worse condition than the focal location. This was derived using the BILBI global biodiversity assessment system, by integrating: (1) an updated map of the terrestrial human footprint on natural systems, and; (2) generalized dissimilarity models of species assemblage turnover for terrestrial vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants.less
