Terrestrial Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem (GDE) Density and Biodiversity Value

This dataset is based on two primary inputs: (1) the Potential Terrestrial Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem (GDE) mapping undertaken by Dresel et al. (2010). See separate metadata record for GDE_TERR_DENSITY, and: (2) Natureprint V2.0 (DSE, 2011). NPv2 is a ranked surface of biodiversity values across Victoria implemented within the reserve design and spatial conservation prioritisation software package 'Zonation'. NPv2 attempts to efficiently rank places within Victoria in terms of their capacity to support multiple conservation assets while considering complementarity, landscape context and ecosystem integrity. NPv2 ranks birodiversity value on the following scale: 0 - Low Biodiversity Value --> 7 - High Biodiversity Value. Values of 55 & 66 relate to artificial impoundment and wetland habitat and were considere to equal 0 for the purpose of ranking terrestrial biodiversity value.
