Ecological Site Development: Accelerating the Effort

Johanson, Jamin

Publication Year: 
Ecological site descriptions (ESDs) have unmatched potential as rangeland classification tools with practical management applications. Yet despite their great potential, the majority of ESDs cur- rently lack sufficient detail to satisfy the needs of land man- agers, researchers, and other ESD users. Fortunately, however, a notable increase in the tools, resources, and support needed for ESD development promises to improve the concepts, delivery, and application of this important management resource. DOI: 10.2458/azu_rangelands_v34i2_johanson

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.
