Description: Rangelands are lands dominated by grasses, forbs, and shrubs and are managed as a natural ecosystem. Although these lands comprise approximately 40 percent of the landmass of the continental United States, there is no coordinated effort designed to inventory, monitor, or assess rangeland conditions at the national scale. A pilot project in central Oregon with the U.S. Forest Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Bureau of Land Management showed how consistent information could be collected to produce approximately unbiased estimates across the landscape. Exploratory data analysis was conducted to illustrate some of the uses for the data.

Keywords: rangeland inventory, rangeland monitoring, inter-agency, FIA, NRI, BLM
