The ecological condition and trend of the United States' 3,902,000 of Drylands and the extent to which human management actions contribute to degradation are unknown at the national spatial scale.

Our research seeks to develop procedures for determining the impact or ecological footprint of livestock grazing on the productive capacity of Drylands at the national spatial scale.
