    Description

    Social and economic systems provide a context and rationale for rangeland management. Sustaining rangeland ecosystems requires attention to the social and economic conditions that accompany the functioning of those systems. We present and discuss economic and social indicators for rangeland sustainability that have possible relevance in the United States. A brief conceptual basis for each indicator is offered describing its potential relationship to rangelands. The importance of these indicators to other countries having different social and economic conditions is less assured.
