- Numerous ecological site descriptions in the southern Utah portion of the Colorado Plateau can be difficult to navigate, so we held a workshop aimed at adding value and functionality to the current ecological site system.
- We created new groups of ecological sites and drafted state-and-transition models for these new groups.
- We were able to distill the current large number of ecological sites in the study area (ca. 150) into eight ecological site groups that capture important variability in ecosystem dynamics.
- Several inventory and monitoring programs and landscape scale planning actions will likely benefit from more generalized ecological site group concepts.
