    This research project will develop methods and produce an operational GIS-based, integrated watershed assessment and planning tool, the Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment tool (AGWA) that provides land managers with the information necessary to evaluate the effects of urbanization and livestock grazing impacts on water quantity and quality. Rangeland Assessment and Monitoring Service Development problem. The Kenyan rangelands through livestock production, contribute to over 12% of the 40% Agricultural GDP with further contribution through the tourism sector. They cover over 70% of the country and are home to both wildlife and pastoral communities.

    The Northwest Watershed Research Center, in cooperation with the ARS Southwest Watershed Research Center in Tucson, AZ and the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station in Moscow, ID initiated a project to develop the Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM) to assist in predicting management impacts on runoff and soil erosion on rangelands. Pasture and rangeland monitoring should be a systematic, structured approach to tracking changes in plant communities over time. Before you begin the process of monitoring, it is important to understand why you are monitoring and to establish some well-defined goals for your monitoring program.

    Rangeland stream systems are increasingly a focal point for efforts to influence upland management, owing to actual or perceived influences of resource management on water resources. Monitoring of rangeland streams for compliance with provisions of the Federal Clean Water Act is increasingly problematic with current tools, but pressures. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Much of the western United States is considered to be rangeland. Rangeland areas produce a diverse mix of benefits and products, and their overall health, in an ecosystem context, is of national importance. Because sediment yield from a watershed is an integrated expression of all soil erosion and .

Bureau of Land Management.]. This book provides an unprecedented synthesis of the current status of scientific and management knowledge regarding global rangelands and the major challenges that confront them. It has been organized around three major themes.

The first summarizes the conceptual advances that have occurred in the rangeland : Springer International Publishing. To provide guidance for this, the BLM has the Handbook, Rangeland Health Standards (BLM ) and a technical reference, Rangeland Monitoring, Analysis, Interpretation, and Evaluation (BLM ), and the FS has Rangeland Ecosystem Analysis and Monitoring.

This new edition is a major revision of the popular introductory reference on hydrology and watershed management principles, methods, and applications. The book's content and scope have been improved and condensed, with updated chapters on the management of forest, woodland, rangeland, agricultural urban, and mixed land use watersheds.

Nevada Rangeland Monitoring Handbook (3rd) | Chapter 07 - Monitoring Methods - Short-Term or Implementation Monitoring. In selecting short-term monitoring methods, consider the goals, objectives and strategies being used for management. For example, if the strategy is rotation of short periods of growing season use after recovery, utilization measurements may.

The notebook, a reference source for ft field specialists is concerned with planning and designing watershed monitoring projects. The notebook is divided into six chapters. Chapter 1 defines monitoring, suggests an outline for monitoring plans, and distinguishes between both' direct (sampling) and indirect (modeling^, monitoring^ strategies.

references outlining procedures for rangeland inventory, monitoring, and the evaluation of rangeland data. Through his efforts, resource specialists were provided with the tools to improve the public rangelands for the benefit of rangeland users and the American public.

DEDICATION. The methods described here are useful for: determining the carrying capacity of your various pastures ; correlating transect, clipping, and measurement results with a visual image that will later help you visually monitor range conditions.

Pathogens of concern in rangeland streams include Cryptosporidium parvum, Salmonella, Campylobacter and Escherichia coli OH7. Microbial pollution sources include wildlife, humans, and livestock. In California, fecal coliform standards range from 20 to colony forming units (cfu) per milliliter (mL) of water sampled.

Reliable inventory and monitoring data are difficult to obtain in rangeland situations, which are characterized by extensive areas and considerable spatial and temporal in attributes. Although inventory and monitoring embrace many similar principles, different vegetation attributes and sampling methods are often required to meet the specific objectives of each.

- This is a site through Humboldt University. The page is titled Research Tools for searching the rangeland resource science literature. One useful link is to look under Reference Materials and go to link to Handbooks and Manuals which has a large list of books and manuals on monitoring.

There is also a section on monitoring riparian areas. The majority of the water for Texans comes from a land resource called rangeland, the state’s largest watershed. Rangelands comprise sixty percent or ninety million acres of Texas land.

Rangelands consist of grasslands, shrublands, marsh areas, deserts, and woodlands which are not used for commercial timber production.

The book outlines general considerations related to water quality monitoring, provides a general protocol for a monitoring programme and includes such elements as staff.

Rangeland measurements may also involve assessing the foraging and browsing activities of various animal species, which may also involve making a census of wildlife populations. At the broader, landscape scale, rangeland measurements can involve assessing the level of recreational use or of erosion occurring within a watershed.

Range Management- Manipulation of rangeland components to obtain optimum combination of goods and services for society on a sustained basis.

Rangeland (Range)- Uncultivated land that will provide the necessities of life for grazing and browsing animals. Multiple Use- Harmonious use of the range for more than one purpose; livestock, wildlife, water.
