    There are no clear boundaries that define vegetation types across rangeland landscapes. However, grasses are generally a major component of rangeland vegetation so becoming familiar with grass plant growth is essential.  Rangeland plant species are often grouped into vegetation types to provide a framework for managers to assess the ecological status and trend of plant communities.
