Rangelands are usually found in drylands or arid and semi-arid lands, where rainfall is low and variable resulting in the distribution of vegetation and other resources in an uneven and patchy manner. However not all rangelands are found in drylands (as indeed not all drylands are rangelands), and rangelands can include wetlands and forests too.

Resource Library Reference materials, how-to manuals, and other support that tribal staff and members may use for range management of tribal lands. This book examines the problems and opportunities involved in man's use of semi-arid areas. The authors are all actively involved in research and land management in the areas discussed. Each chapter begins with a detailed, up-to-date account of the ecology of the region (its climate, soils, vegetation, fauna and main ecological characteristics). inoe the subject under discussion was the ecological management of arid and semi-arid rangelands, the abbreviation E4ASAR was adopted as the descriptor of the Confer-ence and of the programme which emerged. The Conference emphasised, nonetheless, that the development of arid and nemi-arid rangelands often necessitates consideration of associated.

grass, that are managed as rangelands. Arid rangelands, which typify much of Ari-zona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, California and Washington, can yield anywhere from to 1, pounds or more of dry matter per acre per year. Rangelands are typically characterized by low precipitation, shallow soils and slow. Ecology, Management, and Restoration of Rangelands Rangelands are many things to many people. Speak the word and some will envision the home of the American cowboy, others see vast herds on the African Serengeti, and for still others the Australian Outback is synonymous with the term.   Increasingly, arid rangelands are being converted to supply agricultural commodity markets (Fig. ) at the expense of wildlife habitat. In addition, even the most remote rangelands are influenced by globalization, which can drive price anomalies in certain livestock products. Rangelands, semiarid, and arid regions unsuitable for cultivation or forests, are intrinsically prone to erosion at rates that exceed the rate of soil development. Subject to patterns of erratic or infrequent rainfall, ground cover consisting of microbiotic crusts, forbs, grasses, and shrubs can vary over the course of a year from nearly.
