DescriptionThe USDA Forest Service national range program is currently evaluating its information needs at the national level A Range Measurement Task Group of Agency personnel was assembled in January 1988 to evaluate the information needs and recommend appropriate measures and reports. This document is the final recommendation of the task group. The recommendation includes measuring and reporting five broad areas of range management: range vegetation management, riparian vegetation management, grazing management, noxious weed management, and wild horse and burro management. Each area is directly linked to accomplishment of Forest plan objectives. The recommendation of the task group will be evaluated by the Chief of the Forest Service and his staff for possible implementation as new policy direction.
