Rangeland Analysis Platf orm: Integrating production and economics into area-wide planning

February 25th\, 3:00 p.m. ET

Rangelands produce ecosystem services tha t not only support biodiversity and wildlife\, but also sustain livestock operations and rural economies. Woody encroachment is a threat to rangelan d productivity\, but its impact is often overlooked due to its slow pace a nd the positive public perception of trees. The Rangeland Analysis Platfor m (RAP) is an innovative online tool that combines current and historical satellite imagery with thousands of on-the-ground vegetation measurements to facilitate an exploration of trends in western vegetation over time. Us ing RAP’\;s recently developed remotely sensed products of rangeland production\, we quantify the amount of forage lost to woody encroachment a cross western rangelands over the past three decades. Translating these lo sses into dollars\, we demonstrate how this knowledge can be integrated in to area-wide planning to stop further economic loss and prevent wholescale ecosystem transitions.
