A computerized database used to generate a global vegetation
map of 44 different land ecosystem complexes comprising seven
broad groups is provided. The database provides a basis for
making improved estimates of vegetation areas and carbon
quantities, of natural biological exchanges of CO2, and
eventually of the net historic shifts of carbon between the
biosphere and the atmosphere.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the https://makedatacount.org/ project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
