-Plant height is measured with a graduated survey rod or measuring stick with a 30cm disc affixed to the top of the measuring tool.  An imagery cylinder extends from the disc's circumference to the ground. ​ The highest point of any plant (living or dead) that falls within this cylinder is recorded. ​ Woody and/or herbaceous plants are differentiated. ​  If both woody and herbaceous plants are present underneath the disc, the tallest of each type of plant is recorded. ​ If no plants are present, a value of "​0"​ is recorded. ​ Transects are established at regular intervals (5m is recommended) with a minimum of 30 height measurements per plot.  ​+Plant height is measured with a graduated survey rod or measuring stick with a 30cm disc affixed to the top of the measuring tool.  An imagery cylinder extends from the disc's circumference to the ground. ​ The highest point of any plant (living or dead) that falls within this cylinder is recorded. ​ Woody and/or herbaceous plants are differentiated. ​  If both woody and herbaceous plants are present underneath the disc, the tallest ​point of each type of plant is recorded. ​ If no plants are present, a value of "​0"​ is recorded. ​ Transects are established at regular intervals (5m is recommended) with a minimum of 30 height measurements per plot.  ​
