Ecological Management of Natural Resources

  • Robert Orr Whyte

Abstract

The literature on the management of natural grazing lands on the basis of the principles of plant ecology, and within the limitations imposed by the need to conserve soil and water and to prevent excessive desiccation of the environment, generally comes under the broad heading of range management. Mostly of American origin or written by American specialists working in other lands, it is kept at an eminently practical level for its public of graziers and animal husbandmen. Since this literature deals with the management of livestock on natural vegetation, it is a little difficult to extract those principles and techniques of interest to the vegetation scientist.
