Locating Sampling Points in the Field

Locating sampling points involves locating sampling quadrats or points using the geo-referenced grid maps.

• Obtain a map with sampling quadrats marked, if possible along with GPS points or at least with reference to some permanent and visible landmarks

• If the plots are already marked on the ground for above-ground biomass, simply locate the shrub plots

• Mark and locate the corners of shrub plots and select one of the corners for current year's sampling; the other corners and the centre point could be used for sampling in the following years

• Note the GPS reading as well as location in the format and the map for future visits

• Extract soil samples from these marked points
