Rangeland inventory and monitoring programs have usually focused on describing vegetation attributes, although soil characteristics are assuming greater importance in recent proposals for evaluating the status of rangeland resources. Vegetation attributes are generally regarded as easier to quantify compared to soil properties, which often rely on subjective assessments.

The concept of rangeland health has become the preferred alternative to range condition. This concept is currently used by most range professionals as a basis for inventory and assessment. Version 4 of Interpreting Indicators of Rangeland Health is the second published edition of this technique. references outlining procedures for rangeland inventory, monitoring, and the evaluation of rangeland data. Through his efforts, resource specialists were provided with the tools to improve the public rangelands for the benefit of rangeland users and the American public. DEDICATION.

The National Range and Pasture Handbook provide procedures in support of NRCS policy for the inventory, analysis, treatment, and management of grazing land resources. Revision 1 of the handbook contains revisions to incorporate current concepts and format for developing rangeland ecological site descriptions and forage suitability group descriptions.

land and serve the nation both as. Rangeland Evaluation | Management Applications | Chapter Outline. Introduction. Rangeland inventory and rangeland monitoring are the processes of describing and evaluating the resources at a rangeland site.
Rangeland inventory is information collected to document and describe the existing resource status within a management unit. Features included depend on the purpose of the inventory. A common concern expressed by land managers and biologists is that they do not know enough about the strengths and weaknesses of different field and remote-sensing methods for rangeland assessment and monitoring.
Rangeland inventory – a descriptive list of land, vegetation, infrastructure, and livestock resources for a particular pasture or ranch; provides accurate representation of existing conditions. Rangeland monitoring- a systematic approach to evaluate responses to management actions over time.
Characteristics commonly monitored on rangelands.

Range & Pasture. Range and pasture lands are diverse types of land where the primary vegetation produced is herbaceous plants and shrubs. These lands provide forage for beef cattle, dairy cattle, sheep, goats, horses and other types of domestic livestock.
This book examines the scientific basis of methods used by federal agencies to inventory, classify, and monitor rangelands; it assesses the success of these methods; and it recommends improvements.
The book's findings and recommendations are of interest to the public; scientists; ranchers; and local, state, and federal policymakers. Monitoring is the best way to evaluate what impact the management strategies of your operation have on the rangeland.
Pasture and rangeland monitoring should be a systematic, structured approach to tracking changes in plant communities over time. Rangeland Inventory, Monitoring, and Evaluation (textbook) Historic Methods. The inventory and monitoring section describes meth-ods of determining production, composition, and uti-lization.
The evaluating and rating of ecological sites section gives procedures for determining trend and similarity index and evaluating rangeland health attri-butes on rangelands and forage value ratings on grazed forest lands.

Inventory, unlike monitoring, refers specifically to a point-in-time. When ecologists, range management professionals, or others talk about inventory, they are referring to a point-in-time measurement to assess the condition of a resource. For example, ecologists may inventory the population of a rare plant.

Students will learn a variety of monitoring methods and which ones are best suited for specific plant community attributes, management objectives, or landscape issues.
Additionally students will become familiar with integrating monitoring data with commonly used rangeland monitoring and assessment tools such as state-and-transition models and GIS. Rangeland inventory and monitoring have been transformed during the past 10 years by four major innovations.
1 The first innovation is the standardization of functional indicators of land health associated with the adoption of standard methods.
The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) recent adoption2, 3 of a subset of the methods used nationally since by the Natural Resource .Rangeland Evaluation | Management Applications | Chapter Outline.
Rangeland evaluation is the process of determining the status of natural rangeland resources. Historically, data describing vegetation attributes is collected by sampling in an inventory and monitoring program. From this information, the status of rangeland vegetation can be rated.
