Improved sampling designs are needed to detect, monitor, and predict plant migrations and plant diversity changes caused by climate change and other human activities. This chapter provides a methodology based on multi-scale vegetation plots established across forest ecotones to monitor changing patterns of plant diversity, invasion of non-native plant species, and plant migrations at landscape scales. The methods are applied in the forests of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

Keywords:   long-term studies, ecotones, vegetation transects, canonical correspondence analysis, Rocky Mountain National Park
