This is the second session of an eight-session webinar series. This training will introduce the basic concepts of ecological sites, how ecological site descriptions are developed, and how ecological site descriptions can be utilized in making management decisions.
Session 2 provides a thorough review of the basic concepts of ecological sites, ecological resilience concepts in state-and-transition modeling, and how these concepts facilitate the understanding of disturbance and management. The relationship of ecological sites to soils maps and how information on ecological site descriptions can be accessed will be discussed.
The webinar series is sponsored by the National Grazing Lands Team located at the Central National Technology Support Center. Contact Homer Sanchez, Rangeland Management Specialist, for more information about ecological site descriptions.
