Abstract: Description: New Mexico State University's Corona Range and Livestock Research Center (CRLRC) is located in a pinon-juniper (PJ)/grassland ecotone in the southern Basin and Range Province in south central New Mexico. A number of research projects conducted at this facility revolve around soil, plant, livestock, and wildlife responses to PJ woodland management. The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of on-going research at CRLRC dealing with sustainable management of PJ ecosystems. This paper is divided into 2 sections; the first deals with mature PJ woodland management research, while the second covers current juniper reinvasion suppression studies. We have compiled contributions from a team of faculty and graduate students that conducts research at CRLRC. Names of investigators are listed after each project title.
