Summary This report and its appendices compile and synthesize results of a comprehensive literature and Internet search conducted in May 2006. The literature search aim was to find information on effects of off-highway vehicle (OHV) use on land health, or "natural resource attributes," and includes databases with archived information from before OHVs came into existence to May 2006. Information includes socioeconomic implications of OHV activities as well. The literature and Internet searches yielded approximately 700 peer-reviewed papers, magazine articles, agency and non-governmental reports, and internet websites regarding effects of OHV use as they relate to the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) standards of land health. Discussions regarding OHV effects are followed by brief syntheses of potential indicators of OHV effects, as well as mitigation of OHV effects, site restoration techniques, and research needs. Major sections of this document comprise a "manager's report" which includes a literature synthesis and related discussions.
