With abundance, does this count as 1 or are each leaf/clump separate and make this 100-1000? It was growing only in the small square area shown in the second image

Hi Ryu, You could probably beef the abundance level up a bit, to say 16-100, just representing that there are maybe 100'ish kind of shoots or parts of the plant, i.e. it's a big cluster of it etc. It's hard to put definitive rules on how to use the abundance, but it's more of an estimate and it also depends very much from species to species..
