What is the threshold/criteria SLAMM uses to determine an area to be tropical and everything converts to mangrove?

Evan Larson

Page 39 in the technical documentation says if more than 0.5% of the wetland input data is comprised of mangrove then the site is considered tropical. 

The SLAMM mangrove model is somewhat rudimentary and assumes rapid growth without taking into account growth-stunting hard freezes.
