Table 8 PERMANOVA comparison of randomly generated SACFOR cover classes converted using (i) the counts conversion and transformation (log10) process and (ii) the cover conversion and transformation (log2) process and converted to relative abundances. Values are based on 10 iterations of the simulation. Number of permutations: 999
