2014 Annual Meeting: Call for Symposia, Workshops, and Forums


This is the first call for submission of proposals for Symposia, Forums, and Workshops for the 67th Annual Meeting of SRM. Following are criteria for these events:    


Symposium - A set of presentations that covers a distinct topic. A published proceedings or summary of presentations may be provided to convey the information beyond the event but is not required. The organizer is completely responsible for any publication that might result from the event. Symposia may include one or more organizations or agencies that will partner in developing, promoting, and conducting the event.  


Forum- A set of presentations that covers a distinct topic similar to a symposium. However, forums must include a discussion period(s) for the audience to participate. A written record of the event is not required, but if conducted it is the responsibility of the organizer.  


Workshop - A meeting featuring presentations designed to update or educate a specific group for training, becoming certified, or receiving credit on a topic. Participants would be expected to attend the entire workshop. Workshops may be sponsored by any organization or agency that partners with SRM without SRM being involved.


Proposals for Symposia, Forum, and Workshops are due by May 6, 2013.

March Photo Quiz Question 




Sometimes living organisms can apparently persist and thrive in the seemingly most inhospitable of rangeland environments. What species do we see here and what might account for their vigor; or lack thereof? Bonus Question: What ESD series might this scene belong too? (Hint: you might have seen this at the Oklahoma City Poster Session).


Send your observations (and your own quiz-worthy range photos) to [email protected], subject line "Range Photo Quiz". Be sure to include a question and answer with the photo! Send your responses by the 25th of the month to meet our deadlines!



Ranchers Develop Planning Methodology to Best Respond to Drought 


Rangelands - Like a general mapping out his strategy before going into battle, a rancher must be prepared to respond effectively to drought, one of the biggest threats to Great Plains ranchers. With the input of ranchers and advisers, a drought-planning methodology has been created to encourage more ranchers to develop advance plans. 

Drought-planning concepts are examined in the current issue of the journal Rangelands. Noting that "a strategic objective of every ranch should be to strive for drought resilience," the National Drought Mitigation Center interviewed and brought together ranchers and advisers to develop this planning methodology.
