Drought is common in rangeland environments and an understanding of its impacts on the structure and function of rangeland ecosystems is paramount for developing effective management strategies.

This Management and use of Northern Plains rangeland book was the second of a series of studies investigating the impacts of varying seasonal droughts on northern Great Plains rangelands.

Predicting forage production for the upcoming growing season is an important aspect of rangeland and pasture management, specifically for proactive and adaptive grazing management decisions (Derner and Augustine,Kelley et al., ).Climatic variability in intrinsically high interannual and intra-annual variable environments with substantial spatial variability in precipitation.

Management of vegetation of the Northern Great Plains has often focused on the directing succession toward presettlement native plant assemblages or the historic climax plant community. Journals & Books; Help In some conditions, late summer grazing has resulted in weight loss in yearling cattle on Northern Great Plains rangelands (Currie et al.

), Thus, seeded pastures can be an effective management tool that defers use of native rangeland. Results of this study suggest Hycrest crested wheatgrass would be the best. rangeland landscapes by providing scientifically-based educational resources about rangeland ecology and management.

We find that: (1) roughlyacres (1 percent) of rangeland acreage in the Northern Plains were converted to cultivated crops by ; (2) a 5-year ban on crop insurance purchase for converted grassland could slow but is unlikely to stop grassland to cropland conversion; and (3) the benefits of crop insurance, disaster assistance, and.

Livestock grazing has been the primary rangeland use in the Great Plains since the beginning of European American settlement, and range management has always been closely linked to the livestock industry.

The livestock industry started in the Southern Plains in the s and in the early s moved into the Northern and Central Plains. In the Western states, rangelands are predominantly Federally-owned lands, whereas over the Great Plains, rangelands are privately-owned.

Pasturelands are also privately owned and cover million acres (6% of the U.S. surface area) ; pasturelands are more common in the wetter half of the US, to the east of the 97th meridian.

The relationships between NDVI and biomass, LAI, CO2 flux, and ET for the 3 grassland sites, which differed in management and vegetation, were generally quite similar suggesting that NDVI has potential for use in predicting canopy CO2 flux rates for semiarid grasslands in the Northern Great Plains.

For decades, several researchers have studied the effects of fire on plants and wildlife habitat in the northern Plains. Fire and grazing often are viewed as rangeland management tools, but seldom in combination. Discussions on fire and rangelands need to focus on the impacts as they relate to wildfires and prescribed burns, according to Sedivec.

Silver buffaloberry is an actinorhizal pioneer species that is widely planted for land reclamation in the northern Great Plains. It is used for rehabilitating mine spoils in the northern Great Plains and Utah [4,5,39,85]. Restoration of coal mine spoils increases when trickle irrigation is used for 2 years.

Livestock grazing is the most common economic use of rangelands, and also the principal management tool. Maintaining forage production and soil health is key to meeting ecological and economic objectives under changing climate conditions, and will be essential for sustaining livestock grazing in the future.

However, there is still widespread public resistance to the broad scale use of this management tool. Rangelands 10(6), December Vegetation of the Northern Great Plains William and Warren C.

The amplified “greenhouse effect” associated with increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases has increased atmospheric temperature by 1°C since industrialization (around ), and it is anticipated to cause an additional 2°C increase by mid-century.

Increased biospheric warming is also projected to modify the amount and distribution of annual precipitation and increase the. Major Accomplishments. Objectives of the Collaborative Adaptive Rangeland Management (CARM) experiment stakeholder group, which comprised of 11 individuals (ranchers, extension, non-governmental organizations, conservation organizations, and land managers on state/federal lands), are to develop an Adaptive Grazing Management Plan with key goals; objectives for livestock, vegetation and.Grass-Cast also gives ranchers a view of rangeland productivity in the broader region to help with larger-scale decision making, such as determining where grazing resources might be more plentiful if their own region is at risk from drought.
