Details

When method="Dominant Condition" an additional field ecoclasspct_r is returned in the result with the sum of comppct_r that have the dominant condition ecoclassid. The component with the greatest comppct_r is returned for the component and coecosite level information.

Note that if there are multiple coecoclasskey per ecoclassid there may be more than one record per component.
