How do the fixed Database and Server roles map to more specific permissions?

I recently asked what the difference is between granting SELECT to a user (at a database level) and adding the user to the db_datareader role on StackExchange. The answer I got from RLF sent me to a link with some awesome charts showing how the various roles map to individual permissions. I realize that it’s a high level overview of the permissions and doesn’t display (for example) object level permissions, ie syssessions is only accessible by sysadmin. However it’s still an excellent reference tool. Personally I plan on printing out to put on my wall next to my DMV poster.

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.
