As what was learned from Chapter 6, studies that compare older sampling techniques to newer ones sometimes are necessary to advance the science of plant ecology. This chapter presents another comparison of techniques to challenge very commonly used rangeland sampling techniques. In terms of measuring and monitoring native and non-native plant species richness in grassland habitats, never has such a study been so urgently needed. The inertia of rangeland sampling techniques is extremely apparent in the literature.

Keywords: Parker Loop; Daubenmire transect; rangeland sampling techniques; Modified-Whittaker plot design; spatial autocorrelation; locally rare species
