Promoting the social, economic, and environmental sustainability of rangelands through the development and widespread use of the criteria & indicators for rangeland assessments, and by providing a forum for dialogue on the sustainability of rangelands.
The June 2000 issue of The International Journal of Sustainable Development and World Ecology was devoted to evaluating the first five criteria and associated indicators used by the Roundtables on Sustainable Forests (RSF) for applicability to Rangelands.
This report documents trends in America's rangelands as required by the Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974. The Forest Service has conducted assessments of the rangeland situation for 30 years. These RPA reports typically describe supply projections. In this document Chapters 2-4 are written connecting the RSF criteria to the status of resource supplies.
