7 Plant health Number of individuals to monitor Plant lifespan (annual or perennial) Site conditions When selecting individual plant(s) to observe, consider these issues: 7

8 Plant health Choose plants that are healthy physically undamaged free of insects or disease 8 Healthy alder tree Diseased alder tree

9 1 to 3 plants of the same species at a site Number of plants of the same species to monitor 9

10 10 1 to 3 plants of the same species at a site Not direct neighbors, but in a similar environment Number of plants of the same species to monitor 10 Three creosote bush plants selected for monitoring in an observer’s back yard.

11 Avoid choosing the first or the last seedling to emerge Select a new plant to monitor each year (for annual plants) or every other year (for biennial plants) Notes on annual and biennial plants 11

12 Avoid plants that are close to a road or building For clonal plants, choose individual stems from different clumps Other considerations… 12

13 13 Avoid plants that are close to a road or building For clonal plants, choose individual stems from different clumps Other considerations… 13 Clonal aster plants

14 What if the plant I am observing dies? Select a new individual to monitor Note the death in the comments section of the datasheet Give the replacement plant a new, unique label 14 Recently dead glacier lily
