 ===== Introduction ===== ===== Introduction =====
-Vegetation height is measured as the height of the tallest plant part within a 30 cm (12 in) diameter cylinder projected tangent to the transect. ​ It is measured vertically from the soil surface at the center of the cylinder (Figure 17).  Vegetation height provides plot-level vertical structure information necessary to predict soil erosion from wind and characterize wildlife habitat. ​ Vegetation height is usually measured at the same time as [[line_point_intercept|line-point intercept]] because it is more efficient, but can be measured separately.  +Vegetation height is one of the methods contained within the //​Monitoring Manual for Grassland, Shrubland and Savanna Ecosystems// ​and is intended to support the additional methods described in the manual.  Click [[protocols:​monitoring_of_grassland_shrubland_and_savanna_ecosystems|here]] to for more information about the all of the methods in the //​Monitoring Manual//.
