On the Ground
Range scientists, managers, and practitioners can benefit by including history in their current monitoring and restoration efforts.
A symposium at the 2012 SRM Annual Meeting explored three questions: How did certain assumptions toward the ecology and use of rangelands influence the development of range science and its application? How can land managers apply history to their current work? How can range science evolve in order to meet the challenges of the 21st century?
The symposium highlighted the need for an interdisciplinary approach toward understanding the past and confronting the future of rangelands.
