Required for describing the different layers within a location. Especially useful for describing the location of sampling when the sampling protocol uses stratification. For example, vegetation surveys (relevés) commonly stratify a plot into vegetation layers and describe each plant species’ abundance within each layer.
The layer within a Location. Recommended best practice is to use a controlled vocabulary such as the GBIF vegetation layer vocabulary. The elevation or depth of the layer should be well defined in the vocabulary. Otherwise describe the range of elevation using minimumElevationInMeters and maximumElevationInMeters or the range of depth using minimumDepthInMeters and maximumDepthInMeters.
Examples: “tree”, “shrub”.
