Remember that quality control is conducted after field data collection. For correct quality assurance procedures (which are conducted throughout the entire monitoring process), please visit the Quality Assurance page  for an overview and the  Monitoring Manual for Grassland, Shrubland, and Savanna Ecosystems Vol. I Quality Assurance and Quality Control section for in depth information.

For the most up-to-date information, please refer to the Data Management Protocol At the end of each field season, there are several documents (see list below) that will need to be completed and sent to the National Operations Center.
