These layers represent a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource: Freshwater Aquatics. The potential CT is Plant Diversity and is represented in these layers as the Lake Vegetation Index from FDEP. The Lake Vegetation Index assesses the plant community and composition of lake plants and degrades the index when invasive aquatic species or non-native vegetation is present. Only sampling points found within the Priority Resource are included in this map. An LVI below 43 is considered an impaired lake. This map was prepared as part of an initial investigation to find data available and usefulness as a Conservation Target for evaluating the status of the Priority Resource.
