Management Bulletin No. 7: Don’t Gamble on Stocking Rate: Knowing the Odds Makes for Better Bets

The grazing of livestock, a primary use of rangelands, is also a powerful and fundamental tool for land managers. While forage growth is dependent on rainfall and site characteristics that are beyond the control of managers, stocking rate (the number of animal units (AU) per land area per unit of time) is the direct result of a (hopefully) informed managerial decision. Determining stocking rate is a primary way that managers deploy grazing strategy into their larger land management plan.

Multiscale Habitat Relationships of a Habitat Specialist Over Time: The Case of Ocelots in Texas from 1982 to 2017

Evaluating temporal trends in habitat and behavioral responses is critical for conservation, yet long-term monitoring studies are rare. We used a 35-year dataset (1982–2017) to assess multiscale habitat use and selection by an endangered carnivore, the ocelot (Leopardus pardalis), in South Texas, USA.
