DescriptionIn 2000, a collaborative rangeland monitoring program was established with the University of Arizona, Gila County Cattlegrowers, and the Tonto National Forest. Dutchwoman Butte (DWB) is an isolated, ungrazed 40 ha mesa with relict vegetation. Our objective was to contrast the vegetation of DWB to that of a grazed site, Whiskey tank (WT), across multiple years (2001, 2003, 2004, and 2005). Data were collected for plant frequency, botanical composition (dry weight rank procedure), ground cover, and distance to the nearest perennial plant base (fetch).
