These polygons were created to represent our perceptions of floristically and physiographically cohesive regions of Nevada. Using Plant Geography of the Intermountain Region (by Noel H. Holmgren, 1972, pages 77-161 in Intermountain Flora, vol. 1, New York Botanical Garden, Bronx) as an initial guide, boundaries were digitized on-screen over the 1998 GAP Land Cover 30-m grid data at between 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 display scale. Each region was visualized to encompass a similar overall mosaic of vegetational, floristic, geologic, topographic, and climatic features, using the GAP data as a tool, but also employing other data including personal knowledge of various portions of the state.
