A national system to inventory and monitor rangelands should be based on the collection and analysis of data on changes in a minimum set of multiple indicators of rangeland health. Rangelands are diverse, and large amounts of data are needed for all range management activities.

    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.

Extensive areas are often covered in range inventory or monitoring programs, making it impractical to count every plant or to traverse every meter of Rangeland inventory & monitoring book. Therefore, a sampleis collected to obtain a subset of data that is assumed to represent the entire site, or population.

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 Size: 1MB.

Desertification has occurred worldwide. The biophysical and socio-economic complexity of this phenomenon has challenged our ability to categorize, inventory, monitor and repair the condition of degraded lands. One of the most important distinctions to be made in relation to land degradation is between cultivated land used for annual crop production and `rangelands'.Reviews: 1.

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.
