Description: Rangelands are plant communities dominated by grasses, forbs, and shrubs. Their primary use by humans worldwide is for livestock grazing, but these communities also are habitat for wildlife. Traditionally, wildlife-related concerns of range managers focused on predators of livestock and on wildlife species that are hunted. Today, managers are interested in biodiversity and a wide range of species. Management of public rangelands in the United States is constrained by federal and state laws, which require managers to address the impact of management activities on all wildlife.
