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.

  • Larkspur Poisoning of Cattle: Plant and Animal Factors that Influence Plant Toxicity

    Green, B.T.; Gardner, D.R.; Stonecipher, C.A.; Lee, S.T.; Pfister, J.A.; Welch, K.D.; Cook, D.; Davis, T.Z.; Stegelmeier, B.L. (Society for Range Management, 2020-02)
    Toxic larkspurs (Delphinium species) cause large economic losses from cattle deaths, increased management costs, and reduced utilization of pastures and rangelands. Larkspur toxicity to cattle can vary by geographic location due to toxic alkaloid content. Larkspur alkaloid chemistry can be used to predict plant toxicity. Cattle breeds differ in their susceptibility to larkspur poisoning. As cattle age from yearlings to two-year olds, they become less susceptible to larkspur. Heifers are three times more likely to be poisoned at the same dose of larkspur alkaloids than either bulls or steers, suggesting that they must be managed differently on rangelands where larkspur is present. © 2020
  • Conversation as an Education Medium for the Age of Distraction - the ‘Art of Range’ Podcast

    Hudson, T.D. (Society for Range Management, 2020-02)
    The Art of Range is an educational podcast designed for rangeland practitioners, including ranchers, rangeland professionals, and researchers. Rangeland management is both art and science; the practice of any art depends on mastery of science, a body of knowledge. Rangeland science, as a truly integrative discipline that encompasses soils, plants, animals, people, and economics, invites lifelong learning and cross-cultural learning. True education is a science of relations; this requires communicating with depth and breadth. The structure of modern life in the developed world promotes thin communication, continuous partial attention, and personal and ideological isolation even as moderns are hyper-connected through digital communication devices. A conversational podcast permits deeper exploration of important topics and promotes synthesis and application to one's own physical and cultural context. The Art of Range podcast in 2019 explored a variety of specific topics, such as rangeland management fundamentals, ecosystem monitoring, targeted grazing, managing rangelands for resiliency to climate uncertainty and risk, and understanding and valuing ecosystem goods and services. © 2020 The Society for Range Management
  • ‘Snowstorm’ Forage Kochia: A new species for rangeland rehabilitation

    Clements, C.D.; Waldron, B.L.; Jensen, K.B.; Harmon, D.N.; Jeffress, M. (Society for Range Management, 2020-02)
    Forage kochia is a perennial semi-shrub that can germinate and establish on a variety of soils and varying climate conditions that range from 127-686 mm of annual precipitation. ‘Snowstorm’ forage kochia, was released in 2012 as a rehabilitation species to improve forage production for livestock and wildlife. ‘Snowstorm’ forage kochia is more than 60% taller in stature, produces nearly 70% more forage, and has higher crude protein than ‘Immigrant’ forage kochia. Overall, land managers believe that ‘Snowstorm’ forage kochia, with all its’ attributes of taller stature, increased forage and crude protein can enhance wildlife habitat. © 2020 The Society for Range Management

    The publisher regrets that the keywords and last paragraph of the Introduction contained errors. The corrected keywords and Introduction are shown below. Keywords: Monitoring, Collaborative adaptive management, Brush management, Ecological sites, State transition models Last paragraph of the Introduction should read: In this article, we argue that collaborative science at the landscape scale, supported by developing technologies and stable funding, can mobilize science to improve conservation practice effectiveness. We briefly review the history of science's role in rangeland conservation to provide a background. Then we introduce the Restore New Mexico (RNM) Collaborative Monitoring Program in which we have been applying collaborative science, involving 6 million acres of the Chihuahuan Desert of southwestern New Mexico, for the past 10 years. We review steps we have used in the collaborative science process and how we are applying them in the RNM program. Our ideas presented here draw from and parallel those of an increasingly rich body of collaborative science examples.3–6 The publisher would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. © 2020
