The Utah Geological Survey examined potential vegetation survey methods for use with the Utah Rapid Assessment Procedure(URAP), a rapid assessment method used to assess the condition and potential function of wetlands in Utah. Three different methods for collecting vegetation data were testedÃ‘a progressive timed meander, four 100-m2 plots, and line point-intercept Ã‘and variability between observers, methods, and time of survey were examined. Data from previous URAP surveys and new survey data collected in 2017 were used in the analysis.
