Residual Dry Matter. It is easier to see the amount remaining than to estimate the portion removed. Residual dry matter, or the amount of dead plant material and litter remaining after grazing, has been used effectively to help managers achieve soil and vegetation objectives on California annual grasslands and for rangeland areas supporting annual grasses and forbs (Bartolome et al.

The Nevada Rangeland Monitoring Handbook recommended the following studies to be conducted at key areas: 1) Production – The NRCS Double Sampling Method and the BLM Weight Estimate Vegetation Inventory Method, 2) Quadrat Frequency, and 3) The Modified Key Forage Plant Method utilization transect.

Long-term monitoring is the measurement of progress toward meeting objectives such as changes in plant community composition, cover, and structure; or soil resource conditions over time. It is critical to detect changes in the rangeland early enough to make necessary adjustments in grazing management strategy or other management practices. Natural grasslands, pastures and meadows are among the vegetation types most frequently investigated with phytosociological methods. This was one of the reasons why vol Application of vegetation science to grassland husbandry and agriculture, edited by W. Krause, appeared as one of the first. Introduction / Considerations when monitoring rangeland vegetation / E.L. Smith and G.B. Ruyle -- Plant frequency sampling for monitoring rangelands / D.W. Despain, P.R. Ogden, and E.L. Smith -- The dry-weight rank method of estimating plant species composition / E.L. Smith and D.W. Despain -- The comparative yield method for estimating range productivity / D.W. Despain and E.L. Smith.   Measurements for Terrestrial Vegetation, 2 nd Edition presents up-to-date methods for analyzing species frequency, plant cover, density and biomass data. Each method is presented in detail with a full discussion of its strengths and weaknesses from field applications through statistical characteristics of bias and use of the correct probability distribution to describe and analyze data.
