Rangelands Partnership Websites



 The Rangelands Partnership, a university-based, multi-disciplinary collaboration, has launched a suite of websites with a database of more than 13,000 resources, the purpose of which is to support research, sustainable management, and education about the world's rangelands.


Global Rangelands is the home website, useful for gaining an international perspective on rangeland themes and searching the database which contains full-text articles, reports, videos, learning tools and key websites.


Rangelands West provides access to the global database as well as specific "Hot Topics" with a focus on Western U.S. rangelands.  It also includes sections on "Recruitment & Careers" and "Range Educational Resources" that are being developed by the Range Science and Education Council.


From the Rangelands West home page, users can link to state sites developed by multidisciplinary teams serving local constituency information needs.  An example is the Arizona Rangelands website which provides access to extensive resources and videos on vegetation monitoring, a critical tool for making management decisions based on data collected over time.
