Reference conditions remain widely used as a benchmark for ecosystem management, but there remains conjecture about the definition of the reference state. Many techniques used to predict reference conditions are difficult to apply operationally because they are resource-intensive, subjective, or applicable for a limited suite of environmental variables or over a narrow range of environmental variation. We defined the reference state as variation in native vegetation exhibiting relatively little...[Show more]
