Description: The Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable (SRR) has explicitly included conservation and maintenance of soil and water resources as a criterion of rangeland sustainability. Within the soil/water criterion, 10 indicators ­ five soil-based and five water-based - were developed through the expert opinions of rangeland scientists, rangeland management agency personnel, non-governmental organization representatives, practitioners, and other interested stakeholders. These indicators are not inclusive but provide a suite of variables that, when complemented with indicators from the four other criteria, produce a viable system to monitor and assess rangeland sustainability.

Keywords: rangeland sustainability, soil indicators, water indicators, Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable
