    Description

    The USDA Forest Service’s Southwestern Borderlands Ecosystem Management Project mission is to contribute to the scientific basis for developing and implementing a comprehensive ecosystem management plan to restore natural processes, improve the productivity and biological diversity of grasslands and woodlands, and sustain an open landscape with a viable rural economy and social structure in the borderlands of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. The Project works closely with its numerous research and management partners from Federal and State agencies, universities, conservation organizations, non-governmental organizations, and private landowners. Approximately 180 research and resource publications, academic theses and dissertations, and other reports have resulted from this cooperation since 1994. Future research will determine the effects of rangeland restoration techniques and fire at landscape levels on Borderland ecosystem components, and develop and evaluate integrated cost-effective monitoring methodologies.
