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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • Season of Burning Affects Herbage Quality and Yield on Pine-Bluestem Range

    Grelen, H. E.; Epps, E. A. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Burning different portions of a range in winter, spring, and summer provided adequate protein in herbage for a much longer period than winter burning alone. Phosphorus was deficient the year round, regardless of burning schedule.
  • Rotation of Deferred Grazing

    Anderson, E. W. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Deferred grazing is good for the range resource. It benefits the livestock, wildlife, and watershed quality and dependability. It makes the countryside look better and enhances recreation. It reduces costs of livestock production. If deferred grazing is good for one pasture, then rotation of deferred grazing is good for a number of pastures over a period of years.
  • Residual Effects of Ammonium Nitrate and Ammonium Phosphate on Some Native Ranges of British Columbia

    Hubbard, W. A.; Mason, J. L. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Applied nitrogen was effective in increasing forage production on some native ranges of British Columbia. The effect was residual showing response after six years. However, it was only economically feasible at the Summerland site where production was increased 76% over a six-year period. Phosphorus appeared to be of little value, either alone or in combination with nitrogen.
  • Nitrogen Availability on Fall-Burned Oak-Mountainmahogany Chaparral

    Mayland, H. F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Nitrogen availability, as shown by short-term uptake by barley, was significantly higher on soils from burned than from unburned areas 10 months after burning. Increased soil-nitrogen concentrations were observed at all depths on the burned as compared with the unburned treatment.
  • Food Preference of Antelope and Domestic Sheep in Wyoming's Red Desert

    Severson, K. E.; May, M. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    A food habits study, in a big sagebrush-grass type in Wyoming's Red Desert, revealed very little overlap in use of native range forage by pronghorn antelope and domestic sheep. Generally, sheep preferred grasses whereas antelope utilized shrubs.
  • Fall Fertilization of Intermediate Wheatgrass in the Southwestern Ponderosa Pine Zone

    Lavin, F. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    The effects of one fall broadcast application of N and P fertilizers on mature intermediate wheatgrass in the Southwestern ponderosa pine zone was investigated. Nitrogen increased herbage production for four growing seasons. It also affected P content and increased crude protein and moisture content of the herbage; increased green growth, plant height, weed growth, and soil nitrates. P and N-P interaction had little or no significant effects.
  • Correlation Between Annual Rings of Woody Plants and Range Herbage Production

    McGinnies, W. J. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Good correlations have been reported between precipitation and herbage production, and between precipitation and radial increment of growth rings in trees and shrubs. Because herbage production and ring growth are both affected by precipitation, the direct correlation between herbage production and tree-ring width was evaluated to determine the usefulness of tree rings for estimating herbage production. Significant positive correlation coefficients were obtained for 10 of 31 woody plant-herbage plant combinations from 11 locations in the western United States. It was concluded that the use of annual rings for estimating herbage yields is feasible, and that the technique warrants further investigation.
  • Breaking Seed Dormancy in Parry's Clover by Acid

    Blankenship, James O.; Smith, Dixie R. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Immersion in 75% sulfuric acid effectively broke seed-coat-imposed dormancy. Length of immersion had no influence on percent germination.
  • A Device to Aid in Selecting and Counting Seeds

    Brown, Gary R. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
  • A Chemical-Fallow Technique for Control of Downy Brome and Establishment of Perennial Grasses on Rangeland

    Eckert, R. E.; Evans, R. A. (Society for Range Management, 1967-01-01)
    Downy brome was controlled with three soil-active herbicides: atrazine, EPTC, and IPC. Seedings were made 1 year after herbicide application. If fallow were effective during this year, soil moisture was conserved. Seeding in deep furrows resulted in superior seedling stands and greater 2nd and 3rd year production than did surface drilling. Performance of Amur intermediate wheatgrass was superior to Standard crested and Topar pubescent wheatgrasses.
