This is the fourth 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 four focuses on presentations that demonstrate how to mine and analyze existing data from research, academia and agency sources. The presentations focus on current examples of data mining, analyzing and interpretation to facilitate site concept confirmation and to facilitate the understanding of state and community phases change.
This 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.
