Description: This document offers some conceptual ideas on how individual parks could plan and implement an Inventory and Monitoring (I&M) program. In several respects, the authors ideas parallel and complement the I&M project planning and development process outlined in the Natural Resources Inventory and Monitoring Guideline (NPS-75). However, no universal techniques exist for I&M efforts related to ecosystem management. Many different ideas and approaches need to be tested. The ideas in this document describe a research approach that the Pacific Northwest Region is field testing for implementing the guidance that is provided in NPS-75. As the servicewide I&M Program progresses over time, additional approaches will also be field tested elsewhere in the National Park Service.
