Description: The Malpai Borderlands Group, Animas Foundation, other private organizations, and federal and state agencies are concerned about landscape fragmentation, declining productivity, and loss of biological diversity related to encroachment of woody species. In response, they are attempting to implement ecosystem management on almost 1 million acres of grasslands and woodlands in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. Reintroduction of natural fire is an important component for achieving ecosystem sustainability. A number of government and private organizations are supporting or conducting research on ecosystem and landscape ecology and management techniques. The research covers several general areas including information syntheses, resource inventories, historical environmental changes, fire and Borderlands ecosystems, range restoration, and the relationship between species ecology and land management.

Keywords: land stewardship, watershed management, ecosystem-based management, natural resources, conservation, sustainable development, sustainable use
