DescriptionThe purpose of this conference was to celebrate the 100 years of accomplishments and contributions of the Santa Rita Experimental Range, the longest continuously operating research area dedicated to the sustainable management of North American rangelands. The conference consisted of one-and-a-half days of invited synthesis papers and contributed poster presentations and a 1-day field trip to research sites at the Santa Rita Experimental Range. A forecast of the future contributions of this historical site were also considered. This conference provided a forum for people to share their knowledge, experiences, and opinions about the contributions that the Santa Rita Experimental Range has made to rangeland management.
