Titre : DEVELOPING A LONG-TERM MONITORING PROTOCOL FOR RIPARIAN VEGETATION IN MOJAVE DESERT NETWORK

Identification : NEV052VP

Durée : Aug 15, 2009 à Aug 15, 2012

Mots clés : riparian vegetation ; long-term monitoring ; mojave desert ; park resources ; status and trends

Partenaire : UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA RENO,NV 89557

Objectifs
The goal of this project is for the National Park Service and the University of Nevada to collaboratively develop protocols for the long-term monitoring of status and trends of riparian vegetation communities within Mojave Desert Network parks. Specifically the protocol will : 1) detect significant shifts in riparian vegetation community composition, structure, distribution, and areal extent, 2) determine the status and trend in mortality and regeneration of principal (dominant or targeted) riparian plant species, 3) determine the status and trends in abundance of principal woody riparian plant species, 4) Detect significant increases in the frequency and abundance of targeted invasive plant species (to be determined by Invasive/Exotic Plants protocol).

Descriptif
In order to develop these protocols the Chandra lab will review the relevant literature and meet with Park Service personnel at the Parks within the network and at other networks developing similar protocols. We will prepare a draft protocol and then work with Park staff to insure that it meets their needs. We will work with the Park data base manager to develop the riparian vegetation monitoring database
