To assess the ecosystem ecological health in grazing lands, an Ecological Health Index (EHI) was developed by synthesizing existing vegetation and soil cover indicators. Long-term transects in Patagonia were used to test the effectiveness of EHI. It was demonstrated that the EHI was positively correlated with species richness, the percentage of total live vegetation, and carrying capacity, and negatively correlated with bare ground. The EHI can be used as a short-term monitoring approach that ranchers could implement annually to monitor grazing land. View this paper.
