Mapping Primer

Banksia leptophylla

Each map in FloraBase contains a legend. Points are represented using a number of different shapes to keep track of records that contain verified or suspect locations. The following headings explain each part of the legend.


The light gray lines represent biogeographical regions as defined in the Interim Biogeographic Regionalisation for Australia project. The darker lines represent an approximation of the notion of botanical province as delineated by Beard (1969).
