Description

The term "rangeland health" is used to mean the ability of rangeland to perform certain key functions. The term health conveys the meaning that all parts that make up the whole, are present and working together. Recently, within the range scientific community, there has been a move to define rangeland health on a broader list of functions. For rangelands, the functions of healthy range include: * Net primary production. * Maintenance of soil/site stability. * Capture and beneficial release of water. * Nutrient and energy cycling. * Functional diversity of plant species.
