Abstract
  • The 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.
