Title: BLM AIM Core Terrestrial Indicators and Methods, Technical Note 440
Abstract: The purpose of this technical note is to introduce and describe the core indicators and methods component of the AIM Strategy. Further, this technical note provides guidance on how to maintain consistency of effort and resources (i.e., cited materials) when needing further details on established protocols. This core indicators and methods component identifies a small set of core indicators (i.e., measurements) that, when collected, can be used for many purposes across ecosystem types including rangeland, forest, and riparian areas. This set of core indicators, based on quantitative land cover and vegetation data using standardized measurements, will allow data to be integrated across field, district, and state office boundaries.
