  2. 2. AusPlots RangelandsObjective:Establish permanent plots throughout Australian rangeland bioregionswhere baseline surveys of vegetation and soils will be conducted.By:*Developing and implementing a stratification process at a continentalscale, to decide the locations of plots, and* Developing and applying standardised plot assessment methods formeasuring and sampling vegetation and soils Project outputs described by: *Collaborations *Infrastructure (and associated)
