Experimental Design to Measure Off-Take and Monitor Range Condition Trends Using Small Exclosures [National Elk Refuge]

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

The National Elk Refuge supports elk and bison populations from November-April each year. Elk numbers have exceeded the 7,500 objective in most years since 1986, and bison numbers are increasing at approximately 20 percent per year. There is anecdotal evidence that high ungulate density is negatively affecting grassland condition, but our current vegetation sampling program is not designed to evaluate this trend. This study will evaluate range condition trends in non-cultivated grasslands using ungulate exclosures.
