Abstract

Range, wildlife, watershed, and recreation research in the Intermountain region is a relatively young science. Most early research was initiated to rectify problems resulting from overgrazing that resulted in a deterioration of range and watershed resources. Thus, restoration measures were closely aligned to range and watershed disciplines.
