AbstractRanges of Aegean Turkey are dominated largely by annual vegetation which is replaced by shrub cover through overuse. Removal of the shrub Poterium spinosum by hand grubbing costs $40/acre and the returns from such improvement will pay for this cost in just over 3 years. Grazing on a range after 2 years protection which was dominated by Hordeum bulbosum was leased at $2.50/A.U.M. This land carried 1.6 A.U.M./acre. There is a great need for a concerted range program; some practical suggestions are made as to how this should be carried out.
