An example of the delineation of habitat patches at one BBS location.

<p>A two-dimensional vegetation map (A) and a vegetation map segmented by height structure (B) are shown. The pixel-based segmentation method (<a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0103236#pone.0103236.s006" target="_blank">supporting information S1</a>) is used to segment two dimensional habitat maps by using height thresholds.</p>
