Cedar Breaks National Monument
This research program incorporates four primary objectives: (1) develop a comprehensive vegetation classification for Cedar Breaks National Monument, and to map the current and potential vegetation for the monument; (2) develop a vital attributes succession model which depicts the successional development and disturbance response of plant communities in Cedar Breaks; (3) map the distribution of rare or exotic species in the monument, specifying the habitats and plant communities in which these plants occur; and (4) identify and map the distribution of undisturbed plant communities to serve as baseline reference areas.
