Domin scale

Domin scale A system devised by K. Domin for describing the cover of a species in a vegetation community. The scale ranges from simple presence through 10 grades of linked cover-abundance measures. The scheme is based on the original (1927) five-point cover scale of Braun-Blanquet, but the finer subdivisions allow more detailed interpretation. See also cover-sociability scale.
