THE PROJECT:

U.S. ranchers have long relied on rangelands to provide forage for livestock. More recently, there is a growing interest in rangelands providing a broader array of ecosystem services including soil carbon sequestration, healthy riparian areas, and high-quality sage grouse habitat. Despite a growing interest in managing for multiple ecosystem services, there are gaps in our understanding of how grazing practices affect ecosystem processes. Our goal is to balance supplies of multiple services in working rangeland systems.

Our team is investigating how grazing timing and duration – two key elements of rotational grazing – can manage cattle disturbance and mitigate their impact on ecosystem processes. Over the past five years WLC has meas
