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.

Recent Submissions

  • A Further Note on Random Locations for Sample Units in Circular Plots

    Van Dyne, G. M. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    This note presents radii for sample locations for eight different circular sampling areas with or without center areas restricted from sampling and briefly discusses the use of the system for locating plots, transects, or plants in range and pasture studies.
  • The Woodward Gate Latch

    Armstrong, C. G.; McIlvain, E. H. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
  • The Pinyon-Juniper Type of Arizona

    Jameson, Donald A.; Reid, Elbert H. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
  • Deterioration of Barbwire by Lightning

    McIlvain, E. H.; Shoop, M. C. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
  • Fertilizer Experiments on Native Rangelands Using Increasing-Rate Spreader

    Lutwick, L. E.; Smith, A. D.; Johnston, A. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    The increasing-rate fertilizer spreader offers a method for over-coming variability of herbage stand and consequent difficulty of finding large uniform areas in fertilizer rate studies on rangelands.
  • Prediction of Weight Composition from Point Samples on Clipped Hedge

    Heady, H. F.; Van Dyne, G. M. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Percentage botanical composition by weight can be estimated from composition determined with the laboratory point method, if differences among species, seasons of growth, and botanical composition are taken into account.
  • New Grazing Research Programs for Southern Forest Ranges

    Duvall, V. L.; Hilmon, J. B. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    In recent decades, research has brought substantial improvement in cattle and forage management on cutover forest ranges in the South. Today, massive reforestation is complicating the problems of integrating grazing with timber growing, and research aims are shifting accordingly. This paper reviews the current southern grazing situation and describes the range research program of the U. S. Forest Service.
  • Use of Fecal Cellulose to Estimate Plant Tissue Eaten by Deer

    Short, H. L.; Remmenga, E. E. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    In digestion trials with deer, the cellulose content of forages was inversely related to digestible energy of the ration. In range pen trials, fecal cellulose seemed to have predictive value in estimating range forage consumed.
  • Low-Cost Constant-Temperature Water Bath

    Pearson, H. A. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
  • Understory Response Three Years After Thinning Pine

    McConnell, B. R.; Smith, J. G. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Understory yield was greater on thinned than on unthinned plots. When pine canopy exceeded 45 percent, forbs produced more than grasses; below 45 percent, grasses were superior producers.
  • Effects of Herbicides, Burning, and Seeding Date in Reseeding and Arid Range

    Robocker, W. C.; Gates, D. H.; Kerr, H. D. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    In a former sagebrush-bluebunch wheatgrass site at Ephrata, Washington, neither application of herbicides nor burning for control of downy brome and Sandberg's bluegrass before planting wheatgrasses were effective in increasing stands of wheatgrass seedlings. In this area of dry summers and approximately 8 inches annual precipitation, severe climatic stresses were primarily responsible in determining the establishment or failure of seedlings.
  • Cattle Utilization and Chemical Content of Winged Elm Browse

    Dalrymple, R. L.; Dwyer, D. D.; Webster, J. E. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Cattle browsed winged elm twigs most intensively during May 1 to late July, when the browse was succulent and higher in crude protein content. As the growing season progressed, upward trends were observed in percent dry matter, ether extract and crude fiber, while downward trends were observed in percent moisture, protein and nitrogen-free extract.
  • Influence of Winter Supplemental Feeding of Cottonseed Cake on Activities of Beef Cows

    Box, T. W.; Brown, G. B.; Liles, J. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Feeding beef cows 1.5 pounds of cottonseed cake on alternate days during winter on shortgrass range caused no apparent increase in feeding time over cattle receiving no supplement. However, cattle fed supplemental feed were easier to handle, ruminated more, and walked less time than cattle with no supplement.
  • Economic Evaluation of Stockwater Developments

    Roberts, N. K.; Wennergren, B. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Stockwater development offers a good possibility for favorable returns on investment. By analyzing proposed development projects as described here, a rancher can make sounder economic decisions concerning range improvement practices.
  • Field Observations On Fallout Accumulation By Plants In Natural Habitats

    Rickard, W. H. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Fallout accumulation by aboveground plant parts was related to differences in leaf and twig structure and time organs were exposed to atmosphere. Trees appeared to lessen fallout accumulation by understory shrubs.
  • What Hope for Grazing on Public Lands

    Stoddart, L. A. (Society for Range Management, 1965-05-01)
    Ranchers need to modernize their use of public lands or face further restriction. Public range administrators can be of real aid by cooperating to encourage stockmen to improve ranges and adjust to changing times.
