Documenting Terrestrial Point Rejection and Sampling Status

The Plot Tracking Template (2019) excel file is intended to help you track your plots throughout the season.  All plots visited should have a row including plot additions made to the sample design throughout the season (if, for example, you add a revisit plot at the end of the season) and all plots should have a status. For each of the various plot statuses, there is an additional section to be filled out.  If you reject the plot you need to select a rejection reason and add any additional comments in the the rejection criteria and rejection criteria comments fields, for example.  For detailed instructions, see Populating a Plot Tracking Excel (new in 2019).  If you have any questions about populating this excel file, please contact the AIM Data Manager, Sarah Burnett.
