Research Project: Technologies for Management of Arid and Semi-Arid Rangelands

Location: Range Management Research

Project Number: 3050-11210-007-86-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 1, 2010
End Date: Feb 28, 2015

Objective:
The objectives of this cooperative research project are to: (1) develop technologies for integrative assessment and monitoring of ecologically important rangeland properties at multiple scales; and (2) to develop approaches for management and restoration of rangelands.

Approach:
Collaborative experiments will be designed and implemented at jointly identified sites in the Southwestern United States and China rangelands. Experiments will be patterned after existing experiments to: (1) design assessment and monitoring technologies that level ground-based and remotely sensed indicators of ecosystem properties; and (2) design methods to identify and restore locales within landscapes where key processes can be manipulated to sustainably promote management for desired conditions.
