Prevalence of, and changes in, land cover types. The value in each bar indicates the percentage (%) of each land cover type. The range of the ‘grassland in broad sense’ land use category is denoted by the shaded area. The black line connecting the left bar to the right bar shows the change of land use between the periods. The thickness of the line corresponds to the proportion of the area changed (with respect to the whole survey area). When land cover changed less than 1% of the whole, the line was omitted.
