Bringing History Into Range Management

Many range management professionals have an interest in the past, but they may have little idea as to how they can apply history to their current work. For over 100 years, range man- agers have worked steadily to improve rangelands and live- stock raising practices in the American West and throughout the world. Yet the Society for Range Management (SRM), founded in 1948, is only six decades old—relatively young for a scienti c association. I am happy to report that interest in this history has expanded within the Society in recent years. The plenary sessions for each of the three most recent annual meetings of SRM (Denver, Billings, and Spokane) featured at least one presentation about the history of rangelands or the range management profession. DOI: 10.2458/azu_rangelands_v35i1_pearce

Society for Range Management

Rangelands, a publication of the Society for Range Management, serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of facts, ideas, and philosophies pertaining to the study, management, and use of rangelands. The journal features scientific and historical articles as well as Society news. It provides readers with scientifically accurate information in a user-friendly format, placed in context of the world we live in today. Rangelands is a practical (non-technical) counterpart of Rangeland Ecology & Management (formerly the Journal of Range Management). The Global Rangelands collection includes articles from Rangelands up to 3 years from the current year. Access to more recent content is available by subscription from BioOne and the Society for Range Management and may also be available at your local university library.
