These proceedings are the result of a symposium, "Conserving biodiversity on native rangelands" held on August 17, 1995 in Fort Robinson State Park, NE. The purpose of this symposium was to provide a forum to discuss how elements of rangeland biodiversity are being conserved today. We asked, "How resilient and sustainable are rangeland systems to the increasing demands of a growing human population and to extended periods of drought?" Key programs and issues, identified by a program committee, were addressed by researchers and managers. Their papers provide research results, management findings, and describe management programs currently used to conserve rangeland biodiversity.
