GENERALIZED 2009 MONITORING METHODOLOGY - USE WITH FORM 2
Task                  Description
Site Orientation      Group check-in, locate and familiarize target species, turn on GPS, note start time for
                      future planning.
Reconnaissance Survey Walk area of each boundary, flag clusters of target species, flag boundary of
                      subpopulations w/different color pin flags. Photograph site w/pin flags.
Map SMA Boundary      Using ODOT SMA Monitoring ArcPad application, map each of the SMA boundaries
                      (See FORM Instructions, line 16 - the SMA Boundary includes buffer). If the boundary
                      has already been mapped, edit the shape as needed to match your preferred SMA
                      boundary. Update Boundary information on FORM 1 as needed.

Map Feature Boundary      Using the same SMA Monitoring ArcPad application, map the population or
                          subpopulation feature boundary. If it has already been mapped, edit the shape as
                          needed to match your flagged boundary.
Map Miscellaneous         Using the same SMA Monitoring ArcPad application, map features such as fence
Features                  lines, ROW boundary, 4-ft back-ditch, driveways, utilities, disturbances, SMA signs, or
                          other important SMA management features. Back-up with a hand-drawn sketch.

Update Habitat            Use FORM 1 to update observed habitat information relevant to the entire SMA-site.
Information               Use FORM 2 to record boundary-specific habitat information.
Determine Methodology     Complete population census, sampling, or visual estimate. Record method on survey
                          form and in ArcPad.
                          a. Complete census = when you can efficiently count all individuals, for small
                          population, or larger population in a small area.
                          b. Sampling = when entire population is too large to count efficiently. You may want to
                          sample from the entire population (best with large population in a discrete area) or
                          have a sampling design that samples from different subpopulations (best with
                          geographically disjunct populations). See sampling design recommendation below.

                          c. Visual estimate = use for large population size and/or large population or area.
                          More appropriate with cover than density or frequency.
Define "Individual"       Determine if what you are defining as a unit or individual - the entire plant, a stem, or
                          multiple stems (clump, cluster, bunch, etc.)
                          a. Plant = species in which the individual is distinct and obvious, i.e. a bulb plant like
                          Fritillaria gentneri.
                          b. Stem = species that has distinct, individual units but it's difficult to determine
                          whether genet (genetically isolated individual) or ramet (part of clone), i.e.
                          strawberries, Aster curtis
                          c. Stems/clump = clusters of individuals that you can't distinguish as distinct units (e.g.
                          Sidalcea nelsoniana), describe how far apart they are separated from others

Define counted life stages Decide which general phenology/age classes will be included in the inventory. Do not
                           count dead plants (if unknown, consider it senescent, which is considered alive just
                           dormant).
                           a. All individuals = mature reproductive and non-reproductive (includes senescent),
                           and seedlings;
                           b. Reproductive Only = no seedlings or non-reproductive and no senescent;
                           c. All non-seedlings = all mature reproductive and non-reproductive (includes
                           senescent).
Complete census/easy       For small area, not very dense population, target species easy to see, site small
                           enough that transects not needed.
                           Walk entire site, tally plants, and pin flag each individual you've counted (avoids
                           duplicate counts regardless of number of people). Careful where you place pin flgs
                           and walk to avoid damaging plants (example, Astragalus peckii have shallow tap roots
                           in sandy soil which are easily accidentally uprooted).

 ODOT 2009 MON FORM                              FIELD METHODS                                             DRAFT V4
Complete census/belt      For larger areas, dense population, target species more difficult to find.
                          Set-up belt-transects in advance, 3+ meters wide (depends on size or ease of seeing
                          individual), using pin-flags to demarcate transect boundaries. Record transect lines
                          w/GPS, labeling belt # starting from edge of ROW.
                          Tally within each belt using same method as 'easy' (use different color pin flag). Use
                          your judgment, and if low chance for re-count, pin flagging individuals not necessary.

                          Record results on FORM 3
Visual estimate/easy      For medium sized area, dense or highly variable population density, target species
                          easy to see, site small enough that transects not needed.
                          Walk entire site, estimating number of individuals or % cover. If estimating numbers of
                          individuals based on general size of clusters of individuals (e.g., 1, 5, 10, 25), use pin
                          flags to avoid re-count. Be sure to record details like this in ANNOBS.

Visual estimate/belt      For larger areas, dense population, target species more difficult to find.
                          Set-up belt-transects as in complete census/belt.
                          Estimate within each belt as in 'Visual estimate/easy.'
                          Record results on FORM 3
Sampling/Belt-Transects   There are numerous options for sampling design, depending on your objective and
                          whether or not you need it to be statistically valid, or if following an established protocol
                          or permit requirement. If your objective is just for ODOT SMA Monitoring, you are
                          interested in status (=presence/absence) and trend (population increasing, decreasing,
                          stable). In that case, a statistically valid design is not necessary, and your goal should
                          be to measure approximately 10% of your population, per boundary. The following
                          sampling method is recommended for ODOT SMA monitoring:

                          FOR SITES <300 m in length: 1. Measure length of site (parallel to highway), typically
                          along ROW boundary, and leave tape in place. This will be your primary transect. If
                          you’re sampling design includes "permanent" plots, map the primary transect with
                          GPS.
                          2. Divide that length by 10 (e.g., total length = 250 m; n = 25).
                          3. Randomly pick a number from 0 to 9 (either random number table or stopwatch).
                          That will be the meter location at which you will set your first secondary transect.

                          4. Set-up your secondary transect perpendicular to your primary transect, extending
                          all the way out to the maximum width of the SMA boundary (typically the edge of the
                          management buffer closest to the roadway and parallel to the roadway). If your
                          sampling design includes "permanent" plots, map the secondary transect with GPS.

                          5. Count all plants within a one-meter wide belt (e.g., between 10 and 11 meters)
                          along that secondary transect. Include all plants that have half or more the "unit" within
                          your belt. Record count and/or % cover on FORM 3.
                          6. Move your secondary transect up 10 m and repeat 4 and 5, until you have
                          completed your "n" number of secondary transects.
                          FOR SITES >300 m in length. 1. Measure length of site (parallel to highway) using
                          vehicle trip meter (preferably ODOT trip meter). ?? Unsure how to efficiently measure
                          10%. Meter plots not efficient.
Sampling/Plots            Follow steps 1-4 under Sampling/belt-transects.
                          7. Randomly pick a number from 0 to 9. This will be the meter starting point for your
                          first plot frame.

                      8. Set up your first 1-m wide plot frame at the starting point, oriented in the upward
                      direction from each transect (e.g., if your primary transect is at 10 m, and your new
                      random number is 3, your plot frame is oriented between 3 and 4 meters on your
                      secondary transect, and between 10 and 11 on your primary transect). If your
                      sampling design includes "permanent" plots, map at least the inside and diagonal
                      corner points of your plot frame with GPS.
                      9. Count all plants within your plot frame. Include all plants that have half or more the
                      "unit" within your plot. Record count and/or % cover on FORM 3.
                      10. Continue sampling every 10-m until you run out of length in your secondary
                      transect.
                      11. Move your secondary transect up 10 m and repeat 5-10, until you have completed
                      your "n" number of secondary transects.
Wrap-up               Collect pin flags, tape, etc. Make sure all your data forms and ArcPad forms are
                      complete.

FORM 1:          Yes             This form needs to be completed either using previously collected data or during
Baseline                         initial or baseline plant surveys at ODOT Special Management Areas (SMAs) or
Report                           managed botanical sites. FORM 1 may not necessarily need to changed for
                                 subsequent monitoring visits, unless conditions noted on this form change.
Species          Yes             Identify plant species being monitored (use current scientific name from
                                 http://plants.usda.gov/). It is not necessarily the same as the SMA taxon if the
                                 SMA is not a plant resource, or if the SMA has more than one species and
                                 monitoring data form is reporting on one taxon.
Env. Site ID     Yes             The Environmental Site ID is a Geo-Environmental tracking number, assigned by
                                 the GE office. A site is differentiated by locality and similar management, and may
                                 have more than one target species or boundary if same management. At this
                                 time, all Botanical Sites are assigned a code starting with "SM" and with 5 digits
                                 (sequential). Use SM99999 if you do not know the Site_ID.

Site Name        Yes              Site name assigned by the lead Biologist.
Route or Rd      Yes              If along a state highway, use the Route code (e.g., US-26); otherwise use the
                                  closest local road name.
MP               Depends          Required for all state highways. Milepoint start and end points for the boundary;
                                  center MP for the site point. Use MP_hundredths if possible.
Directions       No               Additional site information to help someone get to and locate the site, such as
                                  cross roads or other landmarks, including site access constraints or parking
                                  opportunities. Do not just duplicate previously listed site location information.

TRS/Lat/Long     No               Optional. These fields are in the ORNHIC data form, but if you submit GIS
                                  shapefile along with your observation forms, then the data form does not
                                  necessarily need this information.
Map              Yes              Attach map(s) depicting site vicinity, site point, boundary(ies), and relevant site
                                  features, on an aerial photo or USGS topographic basemap, preferrably using GIS
                                  and GPS collected data.
Owner            Yes              Property owner; typically this will be ODOT.
Manager          Yes              Contact name for site manager; typically this will be the Maintenance Unit or
                                  District Manager.
ODOT SMA & Yes                    Not all managed botanical sites are SMAs, so indicate yes or no. If yes, identify
Type                              the resource type and SMA taxon(s). Use "Same as Species" if SMA taxon is the
                                  same as the survey species listed above.
Boundary         Yes              The SMA boundary represents the management boundary (not the population or
                                  protected resource boundary) because it includes a buffer around the protected
                                  resource. A site will have a minimum of one boundary (Boundary ID = 1), with
                                  associated start and end MPs. As per Site ID definition, a site may have more
                                  than one boundary (e.g., different sides of road, different parts of an interchange,
                                  different subpopulations). Provide location information for each boundary.

Side of Road     Yes              The site should have one boundary per side of the road. Provide cardinal direction
                                  of side of road (N, W, NE, etc. but not more than 2 characters). Use M for center
                                  median. If boundary is within an interchage, provide the quadrant of the primary
                                  intersection, and provide more detail under Directions.
GIS Mapping      Yes              Each managed botanical site or SMA must be included in ODOT's site point and
                                  boundary GIS files. Each site should have a single site point that is the
                                  approximate site center of all boundaries. Provide date and method of boundary
                                  mapping, and update as needed.

Buffer            Yes   Each protected SMA resource should have a buffer around the resource to help
                        protect the resource. Describe the approximate or average width, units (m versus
                        ft) and any other information about that buffer.
