At Fort Bliss, a team lead by Moira Ernst and Matthew Swanson has just completed a survey of 5,162 acres using the Fort Bliss Transect Recording Unit (TRU) method in which field surveyors record observations within individual 15x15 m cells using Trimble GPS data loggers. (That is more than 92,000 survey cells!) The raw data are fed into a GIS program and sites are delineated po
