Where do the deer and antelope play? Their home on the range! Not only their home, rangelands also support livestock for agricultural production and provide many ecosystem services that are critical for the U.S. As a result, I will discuss the development of a conceptual framework and implementation of indicators to understand and track the changes in rangeland systems due to land management and climatic factors. Focusing primarily on indicators of impacts and vulnerabilities, the goal was to provide information to support sustainable rangeland management, ensuring a home for the deer and antelope to play.
