Multi-paddock grazing on rangelands: why the perceptual dichotomy between research results and rancher experience?
Maintaining or enhancing the productive capacity and resilience of rangeland ecosystems is critical for the continued support of people who depend on them for their livelihoods, especially in theExpand

Paddock Size and Stocking Density Affect Spatial Heterogeneity of Grazing
Abstract The claim that intensive rotational grazing (IRG) can sustain higher stocking rates can be partially explained by more even spatial distribution of grazing such that livestock consume forageExpand

The New Ranch Handbook: A Guide to Restoring Western Rangelands
In recent decades, scientists have begun to develop models to explain and explore these complex dynamics. There is a need to update the tools and concepts of range management to reflect the improvedExpand

Shore height and differentials between macrobenthic assemblages in vegetated and unvegetated areas of an intertidal sandflat
Intertidal macrobenthic faunal assemblages of a dual seagrass/callianassid-structured sandflat system were investigated in subtropical Moreton Bay, Queensland. Consistently across all 20 stations,Expand

Strategic Grazing Management for Complex Creative Systems
Rangelands are complex systems because the dy- namic relationships between their parts result in self-organization, emergent properties, and unpredictable behavior. This panarchy of nested adaptiveExpand
