Rangeland Literature Synthesis

Conservation Benefits of Rangeland Practices: Assessment, Recommendations, and Knowledge Gaps

The rangeland literature synthesis provides an unprecedented source of evidence-based information to guide the development and assessment of management practices and conservation programs on the nation’s rangelands. It assesses the effectiveness of seven NRCS recommended rangeland conservation practices: Prescribed Grazing, Prescribed Fire, Brush Management, Range Planting, Riparian Management Practices, Wildlife Management Practices, and Invasive Plant Management. Also assessed were two cross-cutting issues: A landscape approach to rangeland conservation, and a social and economic assessment of rangeland conservation practices.
