    Description

    The U.S. Army is responsible for managing 5.0 million ha (12.4 million acres) of land on 186 major installations world-wide. The Land Condition Trend Analysis (LCTA) Program is the Army's integrated monitoring and data collection program designed to fulfill the Army's natural resource information and management needs. implementation of this program was initiated in 1987, and over 50 installations nationwide have begun or plan to implement LCTA. This paper describes the LCTA approach to natural resource monitoring and provides examples of LCTA applications for monitoring neotropical migratory birds and their habitats on Army installations. Activities on other Department of Defense lands related to conservation and monitoring of neotropical birds are also described.
