Welcome to the Rangelands archives. The archives provide public access, in a "rolling window" agreement with the Society for Range Management, to Rangelands (1979-present) from v.1 up to two years from the present year.

The most recent issues of Rangelands are available with 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.

  • Ecological Sites: Can they be Managed to Promote Livestock Production?

    Reynolds, A.Q.; Derner, J.D.; Augustine, D.J.; Porensky, L.M.; Wilmer, H.; Jorns, T.; Briske, D.D.; Scasta, J.D.; Fernández-Giménez, M.E.; CARM Stakeholder Group (Society for Range Management, 2019-12)
    We assessed diet quality and livestock weight gains for shortgrass steppe pastures dominated by Loamy Plains or Sandy Plains ecological sites. When growing season precipitation is “normal,” livestock gains are higher on Sandy Plains ecological sites, and diet quality is not limiting livestock production. Conversely, when growing season precipitation declines by ≥ 20%, digestible organic matter, but not crude protein, influences livestock gains. These negative effects on livestock gains are more pronounced for the Loamy Plains ecological site. Pastures with multiple ecological sites may provide range managers greater forage diversity for livestock and higher livestock gains during dry growing seasons.

  • Using WebGIS to Develop a Spatial Bibliography for Organizing, Mapping, and Disseminating Research Information: A Case Study of Quaking Aspen

    Howell, R.G.; Petersen, S.L.; Balzotti, C.S.; Rogers, P.C.; Jackson, M.W.; Hedrich, A.E. (Society for Range Management, 2019-12)
    Spatial data is valuable to researchers for locating studies that occur in a particular area of interest, or one with similar attributes. Without a standard in publishing protocol, spatial data largely goes unreported, or is difficult to find without searching the publication. Assigning location data and displaying points on a public web map makes locating publications based on spatial location possible.
