Developing Strategies For Rangeland Management
A Report Prepared By The Committee On Developing Strategies For Rangeland Management
In a two-year study, the National Academy of Sciences' Committee on Developing Strategies for Rangeland Management examined at length the scientific, political, economic, legal, and social issues arising from the BLM's stewardship role. This book, reporting the findings and recommendations of the NAS committee, contains over eighty professional papers presented at workshops designed to assess forage allocation, inventory of rangeland resources, impact of grazing intensity and specialized grazing systems on the use and value of rangeland, manipulative range improvements, application of socioeconomic techniques to range management decision making, and political and legal aspects of range management.
