The Ecological Basis for Judging Condition and Trend on Mountain Range Land

Accurate judgment of range condition and trend on mountain range land of the West is no cut-and-dried matter. This fact is highlighted by a tendency toward increasing conservatism in grazing-capacity estimates over the years, recently by many sharp disagreements between livestock operators and officials responsible for management of public lands, and, in some instances, by wide differences of opinion among range managers themselves. A better understanding of the ecology of mountain range land is needed to help reduce these differences. This paper attempts to fill this need to the extent of explaining the ecological basis of the concepts condition and trend. It is written from the experience of more than a decade of ecological research on subalpine range-watershed lands in central Utah.
