AbstractBrowse estimates in this study were made using a random sampling strategy to monitor riparian shrub communities using presence or absence to determine the percent of shrub occupancy and intensity of browsing. This height-based shrub monitoring takes the guesswork out of complex browse estimates. The strategic timing of monitoring periods facilitates separation of wildlife and livestock browsing impacts. Height-based shrub monitoring was an efficient and repeatable method for tracking shrub occupancy, maturity, and shrub form. The Society for Range Management
