Table 3. Condition of features by reporting category

The table gives the results of the condition assessment for each reporting category.  The table is ordered, under broad feature category headings, according to the percentage achieving favourable condition.  Shaded rows indicate those categories which are above the average percentage in favourable condition for all features combined (56%).
