Description: The USDA Forest Service initiated the Southwestern Borderlands Ecosystem Management Project in 1994. The Project concentrates on the unique, relatively unfragmented landscape of exceptional biological diversity in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. Its mission is to: "Contribute to the scientific basis for developing and implementing a comprehensive ecosystem management plan to restore natural processes, improve the productivity and biological diversity of grasslands and woodlands, and sustain an open landscape with a viable rural economy and social structure in the region." The Project works closely with partners from federal and state agencies, universities, non-governmental organizations, and private landowners. The original effort was designed to accumulate and synthesize existing information from the region, conduct a comprehensive inventory and monitoring of existing conditions to provide a basis for research and management, and to conduct research to fill gaps in knowledge. A recent review indicated that more than 180 research and resource publications, academic theses and dissertations, and reports have resulted from this cooperation since 1994. Future research will determine the effects of rangeland restoration techniques and fire at landscape levels on Borderlands ecosystem components, and develop and evaluate integrated, cost-effective monitoring methodologies.
