Long-term population data on birds can provide information on population trends, particularly for species of concern, but it can also provide information on ecosystem structure and function. Monitoring grassland birds is an effective method for assessing the condition of grassland ecosystems, which are amongst the most dynamic ecosystems in Canada. Grassland ecosystems include ecoregions such as bunchgrass, tall-grass prairies and shrubland, but also open forests such as open ponderosa pine and interior Douglas-fir forests. Grassland ecosystems are maintained by fire and grazing, and are threatened by tree encroachment, intensive agriculture, invasive species, use of pesticides, climate change and overgrazing and trampling by cattle.

Fire plays an important role in maintaining health of forests and grasslands, and maintains biodiversity by creating a mosaic of varying age structure. The fescue grasslands of the Foothills Parkland Ecoregion were historically maintained by fire, both from natural causes and by First Nations. More than a century of fire suppression has contributed to loss of open grasslands due to shrub and aspen encroachment. The Area Burned Condition Class (ABCC) measure is designed to be evaluated and reported as a condition monitoring measure within the Parks Canada Agency National Ecological Integrity (EI) Monitoring program in all national parks with fire-dependent vegetation.

The Grasslands National Park uses the Area Burned Condition Class (ABCC) method to evaluate the ecological integrity of fire as a process on the landscape and the success of utilizing fire to maintain a mosaic of vegetative composition and structure for healthier populations of native species.

The Grasslands National Park monitors daily the peak flow rates of the Frenchman River and Rock Creek every year from March to August; this measure reports on the integrity of a natural disturbance process by comparing the current distribution of peak flow rates to a historic baseline from the early 1900s.
