Contents Notes
"This technical reference describes a new qualitative assessment protocol to be used for interpreting indicators of rangeland health. Use of the reference will allow for more consistent interpretations of rangeland health indicators, thus making assessment results more comparable. This procedure has been developed for use by experienced, knowledgeable land managers as it requires a good understanding of ecological processes, vegetation, and soils for each of the sites which it is applied. If used by knowledgeable and experienced people, they will be able to make rapid and preliminary evaluations of soil and site stability, hydrologic function, and biotic integrity on rangelands"--Report documentation page.
