Table 1 Land cover reclassification according to similarities of environmental structure

From: Does landscape context affect pollination-related functional diversity and richness of understory flowers in forest fragments of Atlantic Rainforest in southeastern Brazil?

Classes Reclassification Class description
Water A Water bodies, lakes, and artificial reservoirs
Initial forest B Forest in initial stage of regeneration, lacking canopy
Intermediate forest C Intermediate forest with canopy varying from open to closed
Advanced forest D Forest in climax stage with closed canopy
Initial pioneer forest E Forest in initial stage of ecological succession with sparse trees and lacking canopy
Scrubland Pasture with woody stratum, presence of herbaceous and shrub species
Unmanaged pasture F Pasture with presence of herbaceous and shrub species lacking agricultural activity
Annual agriculture G Short cycle agriculture with herbaceous species (ex. corn and beans)
Perennial agriculture Long cycle agriculture with shrub species (ex. coffee and orange)
Silviculture H Eucalyptus plantation
Bare soil I Soil lacking vegetation, does not include areas for plantation
Degraded area Degraded areas with bare soil and poor in nutrients (ex. mining areas)
Floodplain J Waterfront areas that become flooded, with or without vegetation
Floodplain with herbaceous shrub vegetation
Floodplain with initial forest vegetation
Rural village/condos with low density constructions K Areas with sparse dwellings with vegetation
Urban areas L Urban areas lacking vegetation
Roads and highways M Paved areas
