RS 329 Rangeland Assessments is a week-long intensive field course intended to build students' field skills in identification and mapping land classification units (ecological sites), assessment of soil and vegetation relative to reference conditions for a particular site, and use of state and transition models to interpret current and potential conditions. Students integrate and apply knowledge of soils, plant communities and range management principles to assess, interpret and describe current and potential future conditions on a management unit, and present their results in a professional oral and written report.
