Field Protocol for Assessing Characteristic Species Thresholds

The purpose of this project was to develop a field data collection program to collect data on reclamation areas to understand species composition and distribution in time and space by site type; to test the application of Tabel 5-3 in the Revegetation manual to reclaimed vegetation communities; test the various plot sizes to determine the optimum number of plots and plot size for reliably estimating characteristic species in a reclamation setting; assess and provide comment ont he utility of characteristic species thresholds as an indicator of reclamation success; develop a field protocol for assessing characteristic species thresholds in polygons on reclamation areas; and to provide information on determining the optimum survey window to capture successional trends.
