Biotic, hydrologic, and soil indicators are used to inform conservation planning and adaptive management decisions concerning natural resource conditions and trends of public lands, including sage-grouse and other wildlife habitat, grazing allotments, and restoration sites, as well as burned areas for post-fire emergency stabilization and rehabilitation monitoring. The Assessment, Inventory and Monitoring (AIM) strategy (Toevs et al. 2011), a national initiative of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), is the sampling approach that generates quantitative data for core indicators of resource condition. Field data are captured in the Database for Inventory, Monitoring and Assessment (DIMA; Courtright and Van Zee 2011) for analysis, storage, and wide access. The Director of the multijurisdictional resource monitoring program will facilitate communication among partners (BLM national, state and district levels), and GBI administrative staff and field personnel. The Director will also oversee, support and coordinate training, consistent implementation of AIM and other sampling methods, data and project-level QA/QC, fiscal status, and reporting.
