Gottfried, Gerald J.; Eskew, Lane G.; Curtin, Charles G.; Edminster, Carleton B., compilers. 1999. Toward integrated research, land management, and ecosystem protection in the Malpai Borderlands: Conference summary; 6-8 January 1999; Douglas, AZ. Proceedings RMRS-P-10. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 136 p.

Land management based on sound science is key to increased productivity and biological diversity along the U.S./Mexico border in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. The USDA Forest Service's Rocky Mountain Research Station and the non-government Malpai Borderlands Group have sponsored studies and resource inventories in the region. A meeting in Douglas, Arizona, was held to inform the scientific, land management, and local communities of progress. These proceedings contain abstracts from the presentations. The reports cover a variety of topics including program overviews, resource inventories, landscape changes, fire and local ecosystems, range restoration, and species ecology and management.

Keywords: ecosystem management, ecosystem research, Southwestern Borderlands, Arizona, New Mexico, research/management partnerships
