Validation of a Rapid Wetland Assessment Protocol for Utah: Evaluation of Survey Methods and Temporal and Observer Variability in Vegetation Data (RI-277)

Media Type *

By: Miles McCoy-Sulentic and Diane Menuz

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 testedÑa progressive timed meander, four 100-m2 plots, and line point-intercept Ñand 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.
