This represents the frequency of occurrence of the plant and the difficulty associated with locating and identifying a particular plant. To a lesser degree, this also represents the difficulty of obtaining a "dose" of whatever herbal medicine/poison/etc. may be obtained from the planet. It is divided up into four categories: Common, Uncommon, Rare and Very Rare. Scarcity should be taken into consideration when applying modifiers to skill rolls associated with identifying the plant type and extracting the appropriate material.
This is the quantity of "doses" that can usually be obtained once the vegetation is located. For each dose that is indicated, a successful skill roll may be required to properly extract the dose. If the skill roll is failed, the herbal dose is damaged during the process of extraction and is unusable. The exact result varies from plant to plant.
