AbstractA new typology shows that the notion of rangeland carrying capacity has considerable ambiguity even under conditions of high environmental certainty. When these environmental conditions are highly uncertain, rangeland carrying capacity must be reconceived as a Hahn equilibrium in order to be useful for rangeland development and management. A Hahn equilibrium is a state of affairs which does not cause decision-making agents to change the (meta-)-theories which they hold or the (meta-)-policies which they pursue in their decision-making.
