List of species used for ground-truthing the biome maps. See Methods for details on how species were chosen. Species highlighted in grey are narrowly distributed endemics restricted to only a few of the SDTF nuclei. These were used in a secondary analysis where the effect of widespread and potentially weedy species was investigated. Species used as SDTF indicators in previous studies are shown (x). Widespread but ecological specialised SDTF species defined by Linares-Palomino et al. [44] are shown in bold (x).
