AbstractThe use of science to inform conservation practices is limited by broad generalities generated from limited sampling alongside narrow ecosystem service perspectives. Collaborative science approaches featuring “social-ecological system” perspectives are being used as a means to improve the utility of science. We review our approach to collaborative science to improve brush management outcomes in rangelands in the Chihuahuan Desert. Expanding the use and utility of collaborative science requires stable support via targeted funding and technical expertise, as well as web-based tools and mobile applications that link specific locations to science information and conservation practice guidelines.
