Description: Social and economic systems provide the context and rationale for rangeland management. Sustaining rangeland ecosystems requires attention to the social and economic conditions that accompany the functioning of those systems. We present and discuss economic and social indicators for rangeland sustainability. A brief conceptual basis for each indicator is offered, describing its potential relationship to rangelands.

Keywords: social indicators, economic indicators, rangeland sustainability
