    Description

    Grasslands of the Chihuahuan Desert region are ecologically and economically important. These grasslands are valued for their rangeland, wildlife, watershed, and recreation resources. Biological diversity also raises the value of grassland communities. The potential for multiple uses within the region increases as the diversity of the resource base increases. In order to sustainably manage for biological diversity, it is important to understand the factors that influence the ability of organisms to coexist within a given area. The following discussion focuses on the main factors that influence the diversity of Chihuahuan Desert grassland communities.
