Although definitions and inventory procedures vary somewhat, several aspects of the ecology of rangelands emerge. All rangelands, both by their nature and our definition, are by: 3. This then becomes both a dilemma and a challenge for the future of rangeland ecosystems, range science, range managers, and graziers across the globe. Conclusions While numerous pastoral cultures have subsisted for thousands of years and continue to survive today, nearly all are facing great difficulties as the world's rangelands by:

Nonetheless, the nation's rangelands will have shrunk by an estimated 67 million acres because of land use changes to industrial, cropland, and built-up areas.
