Bryce Canyon National Park
The research status for the first year is presented under the following objectives: 1. To integrate the existing information on plant communities of Bryce Canyon National Park into the proposed research; 2. To determine the appropriate level of detail for implementation of the successional classification, and to prepare a preliminary community type classification; 3. To determine the suitability of draft SCS Ecological Site Types as non-forest habitat types; 4. To begin collection of field data necessary for development of the proposed vegetation classifications; 5. To collect sufficient ground truth for creation of an extrapolative mapping system to map large areas of the Park; and 6. To identify and characterize the distributions of rare or endangered plants within the Park.
