##### Definition

The recorded cover values collected using the methods below can be converted to cover classes as shown in Table 17. Crown cover classes are those used in Walker and Hopkins (1990) and these were selected to coincide as closely as possible with the cover classes of previous classifications (e.g. the projective foliage cover classes of Specht et al. 1974).
