Key areas on game range can be evaluated by browse age and form class. A scorecard is used, by which browse condition (good, fair, or poor) and trend (up, stable, or down) are determined from a summary of plant age and form class. By assigning values (5, 10, or 15 points) to each condition and trend class and then summing points, browse on the key area can be expressed as excellent (30), good (25), fair (20), poor (15), or very poor (10).
