Criteria 6: Representativeness

What does this map show?

Representativeness (R)

Bray-Curtis similarity of each planning unit to the group centroid, where group is defined for the entire study region, each drainage division, and each NASY aggregated region. Those planning units with higher Bray-Curtis similarity to group centroid are more representative of the group (Belbin, 1993). This attribute was calculated separately for each set of biodiversity surrogates.
