Welcome to the Rangeland Ecology & Management archives. The journal Rangeland Ecology & Management (RE&M; v58, 2005-present) is the successor to the Journal of Range Management (JRM; v. 1-57, 1948-2004.) The archives provide public access, in a "rolling window" agreement with the Society for Range Management, to both titles (JRM and RE&M), from v.1 up to five years from the present year.

The most recent years of RE&M are available through membership in the Society for Range Management (SRM). Membership in SRM is a means to access current information and dialogue on rangeland management.

Your institution may also have access to current issues through library or institutional subscriptions.

  • Yield Response to Time of Burning in the Kansas Flint Hills

    Owensby, C. E.; Anderson, K. L. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    The effect of time of spring burning on herbage yields in pastures grazed throughout the growing season was investigated. Early and mid-spring burning reduced forage yields but late-spring burning caused no reduction. Weed yield was significantly reduced by late-spring burning. Differences in grazing distribution apparently affected treatment responses in ordinary upland and limestone breaks range sites.
  • Yield and Mineral Composition of Grass Species Grown on Acid Grassland Soils

    Guerrero, F. P.; Williams, W. A.; Martin, W. E. (Society for Range Management, 1967-03-01)
    The objective was to study the use of various grass species, two liming materials, and phosphorus as means of improving very acid, unproductive, grassland soils. Phosphorus applications increased yields of all 10 species at all levels of liming. Liming with a mixture of calcic and magnesium limes increased yield more than either alone. The outstanding performance of veldtgrass was associated with its calcium-foraging ability, which resulted in the highest tissue concentrations of calcium. These guidelines point toward the use of phosphorus and small amounts of limestone, containing both Ca and Mg, with calcium-foraging species for successful forage establishment in acid grassland soils.
  • Voles Damage Big Sagebrush in Southwestern Montana

    Mueggler, W. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-03-01)
    Extensive destruction of big sagebrush in southwestern Montana in the winter of 1963-64 is attributed to a sudden irruption of the population of voles. Such extensive sudden destruction of browse species over wide areas concerns both ranchers and game managers because it can affect production of browse and forage for several succeeding years.
  • Viability of Grass Seed After Long Uncontrolled Storage

    Tiedemann, Arthur R.; Pond, Floyd W. (Society for Range Management, 1967-07-01)
    In 1961, germination tests were made on seeds of 12 southwestern grass species collected between 1933 and 1939. Some seeds of vine-mesquite, silver beardgrass, curlymesquite, and Arizona cottontop remained viable, even though stored with no control of humidity or temperature.
  • Vegetation and Soils of No Man's Land Mesa Relict Area, Utah

    Mason, L. R.; Andrews, H. M.; Carley, J. A.; Haacke, E. D. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    On No Man's Land Mesa, a relict area in Kane County, Utah, two distinctly different soils were found which produce significantly different kinds and amounts of vegetation. The Upland sand (Pinon-Juniper) site yielded an average of about 1100 lb/acre airdry comprising 10% grass, 5% forbs and 85% trees and shrubs. The Upland shallow breaks (Pinon-Juniper) site yielded an average of nearly 800 lb/acre comprising 5% grass, 5% forbs and 90% trees and shrubs.
  • Thickening and Spread of Crested Wheatgrass Stands on Southern Idaho Ranges

    Hull, A. C.; Klomp, G. J. (Society for Range Management, 1967-07-01)
    Crested and fairway wheatgrass stands thickened and plants spread to adjacent areas from 1954 to 1966 on six experimental areas in southern Idaho. Drilling produced 10 times more seedlings than broadcasting, and stands reached full production much sooner. Plant survival and final numbers were greatest on the plowed, burned, and untreated seedbeds, in that order.
  • The South Needs Range Men

    Cloward, W. J. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Forest range is an important source of forage for the big and growing business of livestock production in the South. People trained in management of southern ranges are needed for effective utilization of the South's grazing resource but the supply is too limited. The South needs a range curriculum.
  • The Relationship of Tree Overstory and Herbaceous Understory Vegetation

    Jameson, D. A. (Society for Range Management, 1967-07-01)
    For study of the effect of trees on understory vegetation a good mathematical equation is very helpful. This article presents an equation which fits overstory-understory data better than previously used equations.
  • The Range Society is at the Crossroads

    Pechanec, J. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-05-01)
    The American Society of Range Management has come far in its first 20 years, as the sole professional organization with conservation of rangelands as its dominant objective. But in the meantime, urbanization and increased leisure for more people have changed our environment. The Range Society should accept broader professional concern for all matters pertaining to range in tomorrow's environment. We need to assemble facts and establish strong policy regarding conservation and use of rangelands. Finally we need closer ties with user groups and other professional natural resource organizations-to carry out our objectives.
  • The Monarch Big Sagebrush of White Mountain

    Schneegas, Edward R.; Nord, Eamor C. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    An unusually massive big sagebrush plant has been discovered growing in the White Mountains in eastern California. This plant is almost 15 ft tall, has an average crown spread of 11 ft, and its main trunk is 48 inches in circumference at ground level. The aggregate value of this monarch shrub is 65.4.
  • The General Environment of The South

    Griessman, G. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    The best laid plans often fail if human (socio-cultural) factors are not taken into account. Certain socio-cultural factors, particularly those which are significant in the emerging mass society, are indicated in the following sketch of the general environment of the South. Changes are occurring in the region that are certain to have direct bearing upon the social and economic situation in which the stockman will carry on his activities. Furthermore, a new kind of agricultural operation is emerging and with it a new type of agricultural man-the farm businessman.
  • Supplemental Protein Levels for Calves and Yearlings Grazing on Winter Bluestem Pasture

    Smith, E. K.; Gnadt, K. L.; DeGeer, C. V.; Richardson, D.; Borden, F. W.; Krause, G. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-03-01)
    One lb/head daily of soybean oil meal pellets was adequate supplemental protein for yearling steers grazing winter bluestem pasture when followed by summer grazing that permitted the steers to compensate for low winter gains. Calves responded to additional supplemental feed, energy or protein with efficient gains.
  • Subterranean Clover Versus Nitrogen Fertilized Annual Grasslands: Botanical Composition and Protein Content

    Jones, M. B.; Winans, S. S. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Application of N increased the percentage grass and depressed annual legumes. Subterranean clover not N fertilized was very competitive with grass when the sward was grazed or mowed. The establishment of subterranean clover resulted in higher protein forage when need was greatest during the dry season, compared with N fertilization which depressed protein levels during the same period.
  • Seeding Sherman Big Bluegrass

    Currie, P. O. (Society for Range Management, 1967-05-01)
    Sherman big bluegrass was successfully established by planting into summer-fallowed land with a double-disc, depth-band drill to control seeding depth at 5/8-inch. Planting during July and August into a moist seedbed gave optimum seedling establishment. Weed competition and erosion on the summer-fallowed land was reduced by leaving the ground in rough-plowed condition until immediately before seeding.
