|Website Title||The Landscape Toolbox|
Toolbox for Researchers - contains research techniques. The Landscape Toolbox project began with two concepts:
1) there are many different techniques, tools, methods, data sources, and models available to aid rangeland management, and
2) for the most part, with a few notable exceptions, these tools are not seeing widespread use.
The goal of the Landscape Toolbox is to realize better ecosystem management by integrating existing and emerging field, remote sensing, and ecosystem modeling methods for rangeland assessment, monitoring, and planning. USDA-ARS Jornada Experimental Range and the Idaho Chapter of The Nature Conservancy are working with both public and private land management partners to develop a system, the Landscape Toolbox, for describing and integrating ecological analysis and monitoring tools that is designed to enable better rangeland management at landscape scales.
