Determining Rangeland Health in the Great Basin

Determining Rangeland Health in the Great Basin
This graphic is the centerpiece of a new guide to managing western sagebrush landscapes threatened by expanding juniper woodlands and invasive grasses. It combines metrics, photographs and illustrations to help land managers categorize a massive and complex landscape into 9 different states. By understanding the extent and severity of these important threats, managers, ranchers and other stakeholders can work collaboratively to prioritize and improve rangeland health.
