Congo) Reference: Devred, R., 1958, La vegetation du Congo Belge et du Ruanda-Urundi, Bulletin de la Societe Royale Botanique de Belgique, (65), 409-468. (scale – 1:5,000,000) ********* Flooded forest (Congo) Equatorial, semi-deciduous, and littoral forest Floating prairie Savanna Reference: B.

  7. http://edc2.usgs.gov/glcc/fao/forest_cover_image.php Africa Land Cover Characteristics Data Base from USGS • Derived Data Sets (1 km / AVHRR dataset) • Africa Seasonal Land Cover Regions Legend (197 legends) •  I reduce them to 7 classes to compare other data set. (SLCR) • 2. Global Ecosystems Legend (96 legends) • 3. IGBP Land Cover Legend (17 legends) • 4. USGS Land Use/Land Cover System Legend (24 legends) • 5. Simple Biosphere Model Legend (20 legends) • 6. Simple Biosphere 2 Model Legend (11 legends) • 7. Biosphere-Atmosphere Transfer Scheme Legend (20 legends) • 8.
